When I was a kid, every Christmas we got a giant box of goodies in the mail from my Gramma E. There was so much stuff in there we kids went nuts! Once she made Raggedy Anne and Andy dolls. Another time she made sock monkeys. Then, down in the bottom, was the homemade candy. Did I tell you my Gramma E was the best cook on the planet?  I particularly loved her chocolate fudge with walnuts. Sometimes she made them with black walnuts they got from the farm. How she got the shells off and the meat out is the subject for another story! Back then people actually liked black walnuts and so did I. She sometimes made them with English walnuts. I would take a out a small piece and savor it for a long time. My sister would gobble the whole thing in one bite but I would sit there and lick the darn thing to make it last as long as I could. I was a weird child.
