My mother in law gave me a "BERNARDIN guide to home preserving" book ( i guess she got tired of me phoning her every yr because i forgot how long a fruit or whatever had to be in the canner). Anyway in it was this recipe and being one of those people who love pecans ( a DQ pecan praline mudslide anyone, my personal favorite) and thought wow if this is as good as it sounds maybe my ice cream at home could be almost as good as DQ's. So I tried it and it was so yummy i could'nt believe.
