Whenever I make this candy, people are amazed to learn that it is made with a potato. It is very sweet and rich and is best accompanied by a tall glass of milk. It's an old family recipe that my mother always made at Christmas time. I'm not sure from where it originated but suspect our Irish or Pennsylvania Dutch heritage.
