       Title: PECAN PRALINES-<PRAH-leens>
  Categories: Candies, Cajun, Nuts
       Yield: 24 servings
  
     3/4 c  Brown sugar
     3/4 c  White sugar
     1/2 c  Evaporated milk
     1/2 ts Vanilla
       2 tb Butter
       1 c  Pecans
  
   The quintessential New Orleans candy. And it’s pronounced
   <PRAH-leens> or <PRAW-leens>, NOT <PRAY-leens>. I've had ferners
   (that’s Yatspeak for “non-New Orleanian”) stand before me and insist
   that it’s pronounced <PRAY-leens>. Well bra, I'm from The City where
   they were invented, and I know how to pronounce it. And you're
   certainly entitled to your opinion on its pronunciation, no matter
   how wrong it may be ...
   
   Combine the sugar and milk and cook slowly in a heavy pot over a low
   flame until it reaches the soft ball stage (238 degrees on a candy
   thermometer). Remove from heat and add the butter, vanilla and
   pecans. Beat mixture with a wooden spoon until it is smooth and
   creamy. Drop by spoonsful onto waxed paper. If the candy does not
   harden within 10 minutes, it may be cooked some more.  Walt MM
