Date Roll

When Mr. Fixer-Upper and I were dating, fifty-four years ago, a member of his family made date roll.  I thought it was the best stuff I'd ever eaten.

Over the years I tried making it but it was never a success and I eventually gave up trying.

Texas daughter is trying her luck with candy this year and asked if there was any I'd particularly like her to bring.  I quickly said date nut roll.

She'll have to look for a recipe.  I no longer have the recipe and the lady it belonged to died this year at age 100.

I probably did not have a candy thermometer when I tried making it many years ago.  Hopefully Texas daughter will have good success.
