Old fashioned candy. A good way to use buttermilk.

Yummy...Yummy...Yummy! I played guessing games with my family. They were guessing everything except buttermilk for where they recognized 'that' flavor. Were they ever amazed when I told them. Everyone loved it. I made a double batch and pulled a little out for my daughters before I added the nuts. Thank you for sharing this 'old time' recipe Sharon. I'll definitely be making it again!
