 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1       c            Nuts, finely chopped
                         -(walnuts, pecans, etc.)
    1       c            Dates, finely chopped
    2       c            Sugar, granulated
      1/2   c            Water (up to 3/4 cup)
    1       T            Karo
 
   Boil a syrup of the sugar, water and Karo; stop as or before it reaches
   the soft ball stage.  Let cool.  Beat in the dates until they
   “disintegrate,” then the nuts.
   
   Wet a dish towel in cold water.  Spoon the candy along the middle of the
   towel in piles.  Fold towel over; roll it, pressing firmly constantly.
   Leave to cool and harden.  Slice approximately 1/4-inch pieces.  Might
   want to roll slices in coconut, chopped nuts, etc.  (Mom never did, tho'.)
