This is a very old family recipe that we have been using since my great great grandmother. It was originally made in a cast iron Dutch pot. We love it and there is no other recipe as rich as this one. Pralines are a big part of our Cajun family and we make them all the time. I know you will enjoy this as much as we do.
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. Add soda, stir and cook until soft ball is formed when dropped in cold water.Then remove from heat and add vanilla. Beat until color changes and candy thickens. Stir in pecans. Drop by teaspoons on greased cookie sheet. (DO IT FAST before the candy hardens)
