Praline candy

  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1/4 cup butter (1/2 stick)
  • 2 tablespoons white corn syrup
  • 2 cups pecans
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
With butter or margarine grease the bottom of a large pot.  (This keeps sugar crystal from forming)

Mix all ingredients including pecans in the pot and heat over medium heat.  Cook until until it reaches 234 degrees on a candy thermometer or until it forms a soft ball in cold water.  Remove from heat and add vanilla. When mixture reaches about 120 degrees, beat mixture. 

When mixture begins to lose gloss, pour into buttered container or drop as pralines.
