|EVERY FEW MINUTES|
|AUNT BILL'S MICROWAVE CANDY|
2 c. sugar
1 tsp. baking soda
1 c. buttermilk
3/4 c. butter
1 tsp. vanilla
2 c. pecans, chopped
Combine sugar, soda, buttermilk and butter in a large 2 quart microwave bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and punch holes in the wrap. Microwave for 2 1/2 minutes, stirring and turning dish. Continue cooking for 15 minutes, stirring every 5 minutes.
Take dish out, stir well and turn, replace in the microwave and cook 2 minutes more or until soft ball forms in cold water or tests 236 degrees on a candy thermometer. (Do not put thermometer in the microwave!)
Take candy from the oven and add vanilla and beat with an electric mixer until soft peaks form. Candy will be light brown. Watch closely as not to over beat. Stir in pecans and pour immediately into a buttered 9"x13" pan. Cool and cut into pieces.
Makes approximately 1 1/2 pounds of candy
This recipe can be prepared by one person as opposed to needing 2 persons when making candy the conventional method.
