Ingredients

  • 2 cups water
  • 4 cups sugar
  • 2 cups light corn syrup
  • 1 tablespoon Steen's 100 percent Pure Cane Syrup
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 4 cups assorted nuts, such as pine nuts, pecan pieces, walnut pieces, sliced almonds, and peanuts
  • 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda

Directions

Line two baking sheets with parchment or waxed paper. Combine the water and sugar in a large nonstick heavy-bottomed sauce pan over medium-high heat. Stir to dissolve the sugar, 4 to 5 minutes. Add the corn syrup, cane syrup, and salt, and stir constantly and slowly with a wooden spoon until the mixture comes to a gentle boil, about 2 minutes. Continue stirring until the mixture reaches between 225 degrees F and 230 degrees F on a candy thermometer. Add the nuts and continue stirring until the mixture reaches 290 degrees F. Remove the pan from the heat. Add the butter and baking soda and stir until the butter is completely melted, about 1 minute. Pour the mixture onto the baking sheets, being careful as it is very hot, and spread it evenly with a rubber spatula. Let cool completely. Break into pieces and store in an airtight container. Will keep for up to 2 weeks. Give the candy as gifts in either decorative tins, boxes or wrapped in cellophane paper.
