Brown Sugar Sea-Foam Candy (Requested)

Household readers would often request recipes and there are several clippings that are responding to those requests.  I imagine most of the readers were farm wives who only went to town maybe once a week to get groceries and visit with other people doing the same thing.  They were probably a little lonely.  The Daily Drovers Telegram made them feel like members of the paper’s household, swapping recipes and hints. 

I like the way this recipe is specific about cooking until the syrup spins a thread…….I think she’s saying if your spoon is only an inch away from the liquid in the pot, it doesn’t count!

Brown Sugar Sea-Foam Candy

2 cups brown sugar
2/3 cup water
white of 1 egg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla

Boil sugar and water until it spins a thread six inches long.  Then pour over the beaten egg white. Beat until very stiff, than add nuts and flavoring.  Drop by spoonfuls on buttered dish.  I omit nuts in the recipe and press a pecan kernel in center of each piece. — Mrs. John Setter, Kansas.
