GREAT-GRANDMA CATHY'S DATE LOAF CANDY



Great-Grandma Cathy's Date Loaf Candy image

Handed down from my great-grandmother, and one of my father's all-time favorite holiday treats. Store in the refrigerator (rolled in the cloth), and it will keep for weeks. Otherwise, it becomes hard and sugary.

Categories     Candy     Nut

Number Of Ingredients: 6

2 cups sugar
1 cup milk
1 8-ounce package pitted dates, cut up into pieces
1 tablespoon butter
1 cup chopped pecans
1 teaspoon vanilla

Steps:

  • In a heavy large saucepan combine sugar and milk. Stir over low heat, not letting it boil, until sugar is dissolved. Raise heat to medium and bring to a boil. Add chopped dates and continue to boil until it reaches the soft ball stage (238° F.). Remove from heat and stir in butter, vanilla and pecans. Cool to lukewarm. Tear off a sheet of waxed paper and have ready for rolling the candy (or do the old-Texas way of soaking a clean non-terry cloth dish towel in cold water and wring it out). Beat candy with a large spoon until mixture becomes creamy and starts to thicken like fudge. Pour mixture out on the waxed paper or damp dish towel and roll up into a long roll about 1½-inches in diameter. Allow to harden. It may be refrigerated to speed the process. Then unroll and cut into slices. Delicious!

MOTHER'S DATE LOAF CANDY(SALLYE)



MOTHER'S DATE LOAF CANDY(SALLYE) image

My mother made this every year for the holidays. I always thought it was some exotic mystery thing, because she kept it wrapped in a damp towel on top of the fridge (I think the towel might have been saturated in whiskey but not sure). Anyway, we were not allowed to touch it; she only gave us a small piece now and then.
