  • 2 cups sugar
  • zest of 3 oranges
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 cup pecans - chopped


  • Put milk in a heavy-bottomed pan on low heat.
  • Stir occasionally until milk is just hot with steam and small bubbles appear around the edges. DO NOT BOIL.
  • While Milk is heating, melt 1 cup sugar in a dutch oven or other large heavy pot.
  • When the sugar has melted and achieved a nice pale golden color, add the hot milk all at once - STIR - It will boil up quickly.
  • Continue stirring while you add 2 cups of sugar - stir 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 spoonfuls on parchment paper or pour onto a buttered platter to cool.
