Honey candy

2/3 cup butter
1/2 cup honey
1 1/2 cups slivered almonds

Melt butter in saucepan. Add honey. Stir together and add nuts. Bring to a
low boil over low/medium heat. Boil 7 minutes. Pour mixture into buttered
8x8 dish. Cool. Cut while warm. Store in refrigerator, but serve at room
temperature.

You can add whatever you think would be good to this, it doesn't have to be
slivered almonds, it can be chopped almonds or pecans, we add pumpkin
seeds, golden raisins, sesame seeds….makes it different every time

The thing about this recipe is that 7 minutes of boiling is different from
stovetop to stovetop. I have gas heat and find that 7 minutes of anything
but very low boiling is too much and the candy gets brittle. If you like
hard candy to suck on, boil it higher and for the whole 7 minutes and pour
it onto a cookie sheet and break it when it gets hard. If you like it
softer, boil it on as low heat as you can and maybe just for 6 minutes. You
have to experiment using your own pans, and heat source. Hard or soft, it
still tastes good.
