Sea Foam Candy / Butterscotch

I kept thinking this was a duplicate, because I remember some discussion about Sea Foam Candy recently. I was right, but this isn’t an actual duplicate either. Like numerous recipes I have, this is a variation of another candy of the same name. The previous recipe for Sea Foam Candy called for more sugar. I have no idea if that makes any difference. Much like the previous post, I was fooled by the faded pencil and old fashioned writing when scanning this and I thought “butterscotch” was part of the Sea Foam Candy recipe. It makes sense to me, since butterscotch is a type of flavoring. BUT, it is a separate recipe!

To give you an idea of what I’m dealing with, I have put a picture of the page with a large paperclip near the recipes. When I scan them, it’s impossible sometimes to distinguish between one and the next because Ms Bartz, the original author, did not skip lines in between recipes. She also wrote in pencil quite often, and that has faded along with the book pages. Ah, well, lucky us, we get a bonus recipe today!
