Pecan Pralinesby Mike Neylan on Sep. 30, 2012, under Cooking
Great homemade candy that will magically disappear when put out!
Zest of 1 small orange or 1/2 large orange (careful only to zest orange peel not bitter white part)
2 cups heavy cream
2 cups sugar
2 cups chopped pecans
Chop Orange zest fine
In large heavy bottomed pot add zest, heavy cream and sugar and bring to boil stirring so the mixture does not boil over
(you do not want to leave unattended because mixture will boil over)
When mixture starts to boil turn down heat to medium-low and keep at a simmer for 15 minutes.
Turn down to low and mixture will start to carmelize keep stirring to prevent burning
Add pecan and remove from heat
Take 2 spoons and use one to scoop and one to scrape onto parchment lined sheets tray
(be extremely careful not to get any on you it will burn very bad-Also the pot should not touch any counter that will burn)
Depending on size desired you should get about 2 dozen bite size candies
Let cool to room temperature and Enjoy!
