New Orleans Pralines


New Orleans Pralines

3 cups sugar

1 cup buttermilk

¼ cup light corn syrup

1 pinch salt

1 tsp. baking soda

1 tsp. vanilla extract

1 quart pecans

Combine sugar, buttermilk, corn syrup and salt in a very large pan (it will foam considerably when soda is added).  Then bring to a nice rolling boil.  Add soda, stir and cook until soft-ball is formed when dropped in cold water.  Then remove from heat and add vanilla.  Beat until color changes and candy thickens.  Stir in pecans.  Drop by teaspoons onto greased cookie sheet.  (DO IT FAST before the candy hardens).
