    Old Fashioned Butter Scotch


    1 cup brown sugar

    1/2 cup water

    1 teaspoon vinegar

    2 tablespoons butter

    Stir to combine all ingredients in a pan and bring to a boil using a medium heat. Once the sugar has melted, quit stirring. Reduce heat to a level where the mixture steadily boils. Boil until it becomes brittle when a little is dropped in cold water. Pour into a buttered dish (I used a 7” X 7” dish). When the candy is partially cooled (semi-solid) score with a knife. After the candy is completely cooled remove from dish and break into pieces.

    Sour Cream Fudge


    1 cup sugar

    1 cup brown sugar

    3/4 cup sour cream

    1 1/4 cups butter

    1 teaspoon vanilla

    1 cup chopped walnuts (optional)

    Combine sugar and sour cream. Stir while heating over a low temperature until the sugar is dissolved. Add butter and continue stirring until it is melted. Quit stirring and bring to a slow boil. Continue boiling until candy reaches the soft ball stage (235-240 degrees F.). Could take an hour or more to reach this stage. Remove from heat, beating it while it cools. Add vanilla and nuts. Pour into greased pan.

    Sour Cream Fudge has a rich, buttery flavor.
