Great-Grandma Cathy's Date Loaf Candy

"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."

Ingredients :

  • 2 cups white sugar
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1 cup chopped dates
  • 1 cup chopped pecans
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Instructions :

Prep : 10M Cook : 10M Ready in : 8H30M
  • Stir sugar, milk, and butter together in a saucepan; bring to a boil without stirring once the boiling begins. Heat until a small amount of syrup dropped into cold water forms a rigid ball or until the mixture reaches 250 degrees F (120 degrees C), about 20 minutes. Immediately remove saucepan from heat and stir dates, pecans, and vanilla into the milk mixture.
  • Thoroughly wet a piece of cheesecloth and lay out onto a flat work surface. Pour the candy mixture into the middle of the cloth and roll the cloth around it to shape into a log.
  • Refrigerate until hard, 8 hours to overnight. Remove log from cloth and slice.

Notes :

  • You can use a heavy cotton cloth if you do not have cheesecloth, but do not use terrycloth.
