  • 2 C Sugar
  • 1 C Half&Half
  • 3 T Corn Syrup
  • 1/4 t Salt
  • 1/2 C Pumpkin
  • 3 T Butter
  • 1.5 t Vanilla
  • 1/2 C Pecans

Boil sugar, half&half, syrup, salt, & pumpkin. Clamp the lid for a couple minutes to let steam run down the sides, catching any crystals that are stuck. Put in your thermometer and heat on medium till 232. At that point remove from heat and add butter and vanilla.

When cooled all the way to 120, toast and add the pecans. Stir like crazy, till mixture changes from shiny to sorta matte. Pour from pot into a prepped pan and let cool for another hour. When solid, remove the mass and cut with a pizza cutter.



Note that if you and your spouse have a standing rule about how you cook and they clean, this rule no longer applies. That pot is stuck.
