I have pecans in the house, but no almonds, so a bit different than the "original" candy.
3 cups brown sugar 1/2 cup butter 1/2 cup cream 3/4 cup finely chopped pecans - or use almonds if you prefer 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
Using a heavy bottomed saucepan, cook and stir sugar, butter, and cream together over medium-high heat until butter is melted and sugar dissolved. Continue cooking, stirring frequently, until it comes to a boil. Once boiling, stir constantly for 2 minutes.
At this point, remove 1 cup of syrup into a canning jar or other heat-proof container. Allow to cool, then cap.
Stir the rest of the syrup and scrape down the side of the pan, then put a lid on the pan. With heat still on, leave to cook 5 minutes. This step allows the condensation to "wash" the sides of the pan and avoid the formation of crystals.
After 5 minutes, remove the lid and attach candy thermometer to the side of the pan. Do NOT stir! Continue to cook at medium-high heat until thermometer reaches 290*F.
While waiting for candy to cook, prepare a 9x13 cake pan by lining it with foil, then buttering the foil heavily. Sprinkle 1/2 cup of the chopped nuts over the bottom of the pan. When 290*F has been reached, pour syrup into foil-lined pan.
Allow to cool for 5 minutes, then sprinkle chocolate chips evenly across candy. Allow to melt the chips; when they are shiny, spread evenly on the candy. Sprinkle with remaining nuts.
Allow to cool fully, then turn out of pan and peel off foil. Break into small pieces; store airtight.
claytonpaul: A bull was put on her herd Late Last May so she was expected to be due between May1 and August. They quoted me August so I wouldn't be disappointing by a late arrival.

Trim: She probably aborted a while back. That happened to one of my animals. She was bagging up but within a short while of her "due date" she began to deflate. I had no idea what had happened. I was seriously bummed out.
