Here’s what you will need:
This is a very old family recipe

  • 1/4 cup light corn syrup
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 3 cups sugar
  • 1 cup whole fat buttermilk
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 4 cups of pecans
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


INSTRUCTIONS :


  1. 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. 
  2. Add soda, stir and cook until soft ball is formed when dropped in cold water.
  3. t 235° F on Candy thermometer, the syrup is at the “soft-ball” stage. That means that when you drop a bit of it into cold water to cool it down, it will form a soft ball.
  4. Then remove from heat and add vanilla. Beat until color changes and candy thickens. Stir in pecans. 
  5. Drop by teaspoons on a WELL greased non stick cookie sheet, foil or wax paper. If you do not grease your pan well it will stick (DO IT FAST before the candy hardens I drop mine on foil
