Pecan Brittle

Recipe Ingredients:
1 cup <a href="/nuts/pecans/natural-out-oftheshell.html">Georgia Pecans</a>
1/2 cup corn syrup
1 tbsp butter
1 tsp baking soda
1 cup granulated sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup water

Cooking Directions:
1.  In a heavy saucepan, combine sugar, corn syrup and water; bring to boil over medium heat. Cover and cook for 3 minutes.

2.  Uncover and stir in pecans. Place candy thermometer in saucepan and cook, without stirring, for 15 minutes

3.  Add butter, vanilla, and salt; cook, stirring constantly, for 5 minutes or until hard-crack stage (300 to 310 degres F/150-155 C). Test by dropping a little syrup into very cold water. Remove syrup and bend; it should be brittle and snap easily.

4.  Stir in baking soda; immediately pour onto well-greased 17x11-inch jelly roll pan. With wooden spoons, spread as thinly as possible; let cool. With rolling pin or mallet, break candy into pieces.
