Buttermilk Pecan Pralines
3 cups sugar
1 pinch salt
3/4 cup white corn syrup
2 cups pecan halves
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup buttermilk
2 tablespoons butter
In a large saucepan, (5 or 6 Quart size) combine sugar, baking soda,
salt, buttermilk and corn syrup. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly.
Reduce heat to medium-low, continue cooking until mixture becomes
caramel-colored and reaches soft ball stage (238 degrees). Remove from
heat, add butter and pecan halves.
Beat until thick enough to drop from a spoon onto waxed paper. If
mixture becomes too hard, return to heat and add small amount of water.
Stir until smooth.
Yield: 44 to 48 Pralines.
Variation: Reduce sugar to 2 cups. Omit corn syrup. Increase butter to
3/4 cup, add 1 teaspoon vanilla. Include butter in cooking stage. Add
vanilla with pecans.
