 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    2       c            Sugar
      1/2   ts           Vanilla extract
      1/2   ts           Lemon extract
    2       c            Parched benne seed (sesame
                         -seeds, I think)
 
   “Benne seeds cannot be procured in many places, but
   the candy made with it is so delicious and so
   characteristic of Charleston that the recipe is here
   included.”
   
   Add the extracts to the sugar.  Melt the sugar in a
   saucepan, stirring constantly, as for peanut brittle.
   When the sugar is melted, add the benne seed, stirring
   it in quickly.  Pour at once onto a marble slab to
   cool or pour into lightly buttered pans.  Mark in
   one-inch squares while still warm and break along the
   lines when cold.  --Mrs. Rhett
