Yield: 60-70 small pralines

Ingredients

1 cup buttermilk
1 teaspoon baking soda
3 cups sugar
3 1/2 cups pecans
4 tablespoons butter
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla

Directions

1. Combine buttermilk, baking soda, sugar and salt in heavy saucepan.

2. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally until mixture begins to form a soft ball.

3. Add pecans and continue to cook and stir until mixture becomes a firm ball.

4. Remove from heat, and add butter and vanilla. At this point, the candy should look shiny and will not be thick.
