DIRECTIONS

  • Pour 1 cup of sugar into heavy pan and place over low heat.
  • Begin stirring with wooden spoon and keep sugar moving; it will take about 15 minutes to completely melt all sugar and it should be the color of light brown sugar syrup.
  • Pour remaining sugar, together with 1 cup milk, in heavy kettle and set over low heat to cook slowly while you are melting sugar.
  • As soon as the sugar is melted, begin pouring it into kettle of boiling milk.
  • Pour slowly, continue cooking and stirring just until mixture is 238 degrees to 240 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Turn out the fire and immediately add baking soda, stirring hard as it foams up.
  • As soon as soda is mixed, add butter; it will melt as you stir.
  • Set pan of candy off the stove for 20 minutes until lukewarm.
  • Add vanilla and begin beating using a wooden spoon.
  • Beat until mixture is thickened and glossy.
  • Add broken nuts and mix.
  • Turn into a buttered pan.
