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.
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.
