From an old recipe book of the GodchauxSugar Refinery, an old company in New Orleans, Louisiana, printedapproximately 1879.
Recipe: Old-Fashioned PecanPralines
3 cups granulated sugar1 cup packed brown sugar1 1/2 cups water3 cups chopped or halved pecans1 tablespoon butter1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Note: This is what pralines really tastedlike in the 1800’s. Most of today’s pralineshave milk in the recipe and are not authentic in taste. If candydoes not set, return to pot and cook longer.If is hardens before you can drop it,add a little more water and bring to a simmer.
