    REAL Cajun Pralines....

    Got this from an old Cajun lady from Nawlin's....she said her secret to perfect pralines is the buttermilk....wifey made them, and they are delicious.

    NOTE: when she says the mixture will foam-up, when adding the baking soda, believe her!!!....so, use a LARGE sauce pan!!!


    3 cups sugar
    1 cup buttermilk
    1/4 cup light corn syrup
    1 pinch salt
    1 teaspoon baking soda
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    1 quart course-chopped pecans

    Combine sugar, buttermilk, corn syrup and salt in a very large pan (it will foam considerably when soda is added) and 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 on greased cookie sheet.
