This recipe was shared with my grandmother by a friend; because of how much my grandmother and several of my uncles loved the results, this is a staple at our Thanksgiving celebrations each year; I now share it with you.
5 cups walnut halves
2 cups sugar
2 teaspoons salt
2 teaspoons cinnamon
3/4 cup non-dairy milk
2 teaspoons vanilla
Combine sugar, salt, cinnamon and milk; cook to softball stage (you’ll need a candy thermometer for this – 235*F). Remove from heat & add vanilla; stir until creamy. Add nuts & immediately pour onto waxed paper; separate with fork & cool.
Grandma’s note: I use cold water & my fingers [to separate].
