Recipe for Pecan Brittle

Recipe Ingredients:
cup Georgia Pecans
1/2  cup corn syrup
tbsp butter
tsp baking soda
cup granulated sugar
1/2  tsp salt
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.
