    4       c            Sugar
    1       c            Brown sugar
      1/2   lb           Butter
    2       c            Evaporated milk (pet)
      1/2   lb           Butter
    5       c            Pecans, chopped
    1       pn           Salt
    1       t            Vanilla
 
    Place milk, 1/2 lb butter, both sugars and slat in a large heavy pan.
   Bring to boil, cook to “softball stage” <this is very hard, you MUST use a
   candy thermometer> Remove from heat and add 1/2 lb butter. Beat
   constantly. When you feel it begin to thicken, add pecans and vanilla.
   When thick QUICKLY drop by teaspoon on greased surface or foil. Leave 2-3
   between each as they will flatten out. REMEMBER THIS CANDY IS STIRRED
   CONSTANTLY WHILE BEING COOKED AND BEATEN CONSTANTLY WHEN REMOVED FROM THE
   FIRE.
