Date & Nut Candy

3 cups brown sugar
1 cup dates, chopped
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 cups milk
1 cup chopped nuts

Mix sugar, dates and milk. Cook over low heat. Stir occasionally until soft ball stage.

Remove from heat and add vanilla and nuts. Beat until stiff. Pour and roll in damp cloth.

(I didn't quite understand the last bit of directions, so I found a bit more explanation here. Luckily, everyone's grandmother used to make this!) ;)
