This recipe comes from Aunt Minnie. Diabetic though she was, the lady liked some sugar. She’d whip up a batch, eat only two pieces, and give the rest to her husband, Sol.

As he was a tad mentally unstable, the recipe is named in his honor.

Sol’s Nuts
Serves a nuthouse

¾ lb. dark brown sugar
½ carton evaporated milk
2 tsp. vanilla
2 tsp. butter
2 lb. walnuts

1. Combine sugar and milk in a saucepan. Boil for 3 minutes, stirring constantly.

2. Add vanilla and butter until melted. Pour mixture over nuts in a bowl, mixing well.

3. Spread on baking sheet and let cool completely.

4. Break apart.

Try to eat just two. You won’t stop.

But do — or you’ll no longer be Minnie.
