Great-Great Grandmother Ross’s
((Cora Alice (Wilson) Ross))

From a cookbook compiled by Santa Ynez Valley Presbyterian Ladies Aid; 1947 (Grandma Ross’s church, Solvang, California) Cora Ross contributed many recipes to this book that I have enjoyed, and became “old faithfuls”. She Died in 1947.
Bev. Portlock

2 cups sugar 1 ½ tsp. Salt
½ cup water 2 tsp. Cinnamon
2 tsp. Vanilla
abt. 12 oz. Walnut halves (takes a lg. Bag)

Cook until a thread (238*), add nuts, stir until it crystallizes -- spread on buttered plate.
I have to keep making lots of Cinnamon Nuts during the holiday, they are so popular!

My Grandma (by marriage) was named Mary Hattie Evelyn Christopher Columbus Addington (1883-1970) but we just called her Grandma Hattie. I never knew this sweet old lady to say a harsh word about anyone. She was married to Major Ross. (Major was a given name and not a rank.) I remember her telling me stories about her early days of marriage when she spoke of Saturday night get-togethers with the neighbors when they'd roll up the rug and have dances and about when they'd spend weeks in the mountains of Georgia where the men would cut lumber for the winters and the women would get together and visit and cook big meals, care for the children and share recipes etc. until the men quit for the day and came back to camp.
She told about once when they had a fire in their home. She said she only had a few moments to rescue her most prized possesion...a brand new set of dishes. They were the only full set of dishes she'd ever owned at the time. When the fire threatened their kitchen, she gathered them all in her apron and ran outside. In her panic, she dropped them all on the ground once she was outside and, of course, they were all broken.
