            -Nancy Speicher DPXX20A
     3/4 c  Pecans; finely chopped
       2 c  Sugar
     1/2 c  Butter or margarine
     3/4 c  Light corn syrup
       2 c  Evaporated milk
  
    1. Butter an 8x8x2 pan; sprinkle evenly with half the chopped pecans.
    2. Combine sugar, butter or margarine and corn syrup in a medium-size
   heavy saucepan. Stir in 1 cup of the evaporated milk. Bring to boiling over
   medium heat, stirring constantly.
    3. Add remaining evaporated milk slowly so that mixture continues to boil.
   Cook, stirring constantly, over medium heat until candy thermometer
   registers 244F. (A teaspoonful of syrup will form a firm ball when dropped
   in cold water.) This will take about 40 minutes.
    4. Pour hot caramel immediately into prepared pan. Sprinkle top with
   remaining chopped pecans. Cool; cut into squares.
    Makes 2 pounds.
