During this time of the year, when you see that word it brings to mind the sweet crunchy treat made with butterscotch chips and crispy Chinese noodles. My grandmother would make both chocolate and butterscotch "Haystacks" and I always wondered where the brown hay came from!
As with every other tradition, I made the butterscotch Haystacks every year. They were usually the last thing left on the goody trays and were eaten as a last resort. Something about them just didn't appeal to this new generation of sweet eaters. Time to re-think and re-do those Haystacks! Don't worry, they're just as easy as before!
