RECIPE FOR CHRISTMAS WHISKEY PECANS
Title:Christmas Whiskey Pecans
Category:Nuts
Sub-Category:Pecans
Christmas Whiskey Pecans

Source: My Mother's Southern Desserts - Martha Pearl Villas and James Villas

The taste of these coated pecans is similar to a praline with just a hint of whiskey. Jim Villas notes that they can be frozen to keep on hand through the holidays.

1 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup evaporated milk
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons bourbon
3 cups pecan halves

In a large, heavy saucepan, combine the sugar and evaporated milk and bring to a low boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. Cook until the syrup registers 240 degrees F on a candy thermometer or forms a soft ball when a little is dropped into a 1/2 cup cold water.

Yields 3 cups.

Remove pan from heat. Add the salt, bourbon and pecans and stir until the nuts are thoroughly coated with the syrup. Pour the pecans onto wax paper and cool completely before storing in an airtight container.
