Crystal Hot Sauce CHS 19 001 Website Photography Recipes HeroImage 1920x1080 0007 Group 11 Pralines

 1 ½ cups sugar
 ¾ cup buttermilk
 ¾ tsp baking soda
 2 tbsp unsalted butter
 1 ½ cups pecan halves and pieces
 ¼ tsp Crystal Hot Sauce
 1 tsp vanilla extract
 ½ tsp salt
 Zest of one orange
 ¼ tsp cayenne pepper (or Crystal Hot Sauce) to taste

In a saucepan over medium heat, combine sugar, buttermilk, and baking soda. Using a wooden spatula, stir mixture constantly until it reaches 210°F.


Add butter, pecans, vanilla extract and salt. Continue to stir mixture until it reaches 233°F, then remove from heat.


Stir in orange zest, cayenne, and Crystal Hot Sauce. Cool for 3 minutes. If your caramel is still runny (not coating the pecans well), stir it for up to a minute until it becomes thicker.


With a spoon, drop your batter quickly on wax paper, non-stick foil or a silicone baking mat. Let harden.
