 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
                         Light brown sugar (one box)
    2       tb           Karo
    2       tb           Water
    5 3/4   oz           Evaporated milk
      1/4   ts           Salt
    2       c            Pecan halves
      1/4   c            Margarine
 
   Be sure to cook this on a DRY day!
   
   Pour sugar into heavy-bottom pot (such as pressure
   cooker).  Stir in Karo, water and evaporated milk.
   Let come to boil over medium heat; stir in salt.
   After boiling a while, stir in pecan halves and lower
   heat a little.  Stir constantly, till candy reaches
   soft-ball stage.  DON'T OVERCOOK!  Remove from heat.
   Let 1/2 stick of margarine melt in.
   
   While candy is resting, set out waxed paper.  When
   candy has cooled enough to not melt wax, stir in
   margarine and drop by tablespoons.  Yields 15 - 18
   pralines.
