Ingredients

1 cup sugar
1 1/2 cups rich sweet milk
2 cups sugar
Grated rind of 2 oranges
Pinch of salt
1/2 cup butter
1 cup pecans


Melt 1 cup sugar in a large kettle while the milk is scalding in a double boiler.


When the sugar is melted to a rich yellow, add the hot milk all at once stirring.


It will boil up quickly so be sure to use a good-sized kettle.


Add 2 cups of sugar to this mixture, stirring until dissolved; cook until it forms an almost hard ball (238F).


Just before it is done add grated orange rind, salt, butter and pecans.


Beat until creamy, drop by spoonsful on waxed paper or pour onto a buttered platter to cool.
