Just in time for the Christmas holidays… some of Grandma Brodhead’s candy recipes, including her famous fudge (handwritten and typed out versions provided). You can tell from her recipe book, which is as worn and tattered as could be, that she was more the baker than the cook. The quantity of recipes for desserts and sweets outweigh those for the savory by at least 60 percent.
As I am not sure I will have the time to make any more posts between now and December 31, I’ll say it now: Merry Christmas to All, and best wishes for a Happy and Healthy 2012!
