Back in June, I wrote about receiving a cookbook from my aunt that was published in 1922. I finally picked out a few candy recipes to try for this month's Supper Club. Back in December, we did our annual cookie/candy exchange, but since our kitchen was a construction zone, we weren't able to make a contribution until the February meet up. Dino and I haven't made candy before, but I figured it was worth a shot! Unfortunately, this recipe didn't solidify for us. We don't have a candy thermometer, so it's probably likely that we didn't hit the right temperature. It ended up being more like a molasses caramel. So it was a flop, but the other recipe we tried out was great!
