DIRECTIONS

  • Put sugar, evaporated milk, evaporated goat's milk, corn syrup and salt in a large heavy pot.
  • Attach a candy thermometer to the pot.
  • Cook on medium-low heat for 1 hour, stirring often with a wooden spoon.
  • The temperature should rise slowly but steadily.
  • Increase heat to medium-high and cook, stirring constantly, for 20 minutes. Increase heat to high and cook, again, stirring constantly--make sure to scrape the burned bits off the bottom as they develop--until the the temperature reaches 245 degrees.
  • Immediately remove pot from heat, stir in vanilla and butter and continue to stir mixture occasionally as it cools.
  • When the candy cools to 180 degrees, stir in pecans (optional) and transfer to a buttered 9 x 12" baking pan.
  • Cool slightly, cutting into bars while still pliable.
  • Cool completely before serving.
