 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    4      Cups          Sugar
    5      Cups          Pecans
    4      Tablespoons   Karo syrup
    1      Tablespoon    Butter
    1      Cup           Condensed milk
    1      Teaspoon      Vanilla
    1      Cup           Water
 Mix all ingredients except butter, vanilla, and pecans. Cook on low fire until t
 he mixture forms a soft ball in cold water.  Remove from fire.	Add butter, vani
 lla, and pecans, and beat until the mixture holds its shape.  Spoon onto buttere
 d wax paper (Add old newspaper under your wax paper.) If candy gets hard before 
 all is spooned out, add a little water, and heat over.	Or you can let it stand 
 on low heat while spooning out. If you have never tasted freshly made pralines, 
 made from fresh Louisiana pecans, you have just never really lived. Justin Wilso
 n says, "Doris is the much better half (wife) of my good friend Gordon Martin, t
 he sheriff of St. James Parish.  Every Christmas Eve we go by to see them after 
 watching the bonfires that are burned on the levees along the Mississippi River 
 to light the way for Papa Noel (Santa Claus).
