More Butter and Sugar

(post, Giovanna Zivny)

The fact that I liked straight butter and white sugar did not keep me from trying other sugary snacks.  One of my favorites for many years: melting sugar and brown sugar.  And then eat it with a spoon, generally burning the roof of my mouth.  It's a wonder I still have any teeth.

I recently found out it was one of my mother's favorite snacks when she was a kid--apparently there's some genetic coding of butter and sugar in our DNA.
