1 cup Sugar, granulated
1 T Karo, Light
1 lg Egg white
1/2 c Pecans, broken
1/2 t Vanilla extract (or more)
1/4 c Water

Cook only on a dry day.

In heavy-bottom pan over medium heat, boil syrup of sugar, water and Karo
till close to done (about 10 minutes); will spin a thread to pot. Take
candy off heat.

Beat egg white with a pinch of salt till you have stiff peaks. In a large
bowl, add the hot syrup to the beaten egg white while mixing at a high
speed. If syrup starts to harden, pour a little more. When mixture gets
stiffer and warmer, can add in a larger stream.

Add vanilla extract to candy. Stir by hand until texture dulls (seems
like it takes FOREVER). When cool, add nuts (if you add them too soon,
the heat pulls the oil out of the nuts and the candy won't harden). Drop
by tablespoons onto waxed paper.

To expand the recipe, use no less than 2 cups of sugar; if you quadruple,
add an extra egg white, especially if eggs are small. Might try stirring
in 3 oz. of broken white chocolate before dropping candy (won't melt).
You couldn't get hold of the things you'd done and turn them right again. Such a power might be given to the gods, but it was not given to women and men, and that was probably a good thing. Had it been otherwise, people would probably die of old age still trying to rewrite their teens.
