"As viscous as motor oil swirled in a swamp, redolent of burnt bell peppers nested in by incontinent mice and a finish reminiscent of the dregs of a stale can of Coca-Cola that someone has been using as an ashtray. Not a bad drink, though."--Excerpt from "The Moose Turd Wine Tasting" by T. A. Nonymous

Lightly butter a sheet of aluminum foil. Combine sugars, cream and salt in a large saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly to 228 on candy thermometer (or when mixture spins a thread about 2 inches long when dropped from a spoon).

Stir in butter and pecans. Continue cooking, stirring constantly to 236 (or until a small amount of mixture dropped into very cold water forms a soft ball which flattens when removed from water). Remove from heat, cool 5 minutes.

Beat mixture with wooden spoon until slightly thickened and candy just coats nuts but does not lose it's gloss. Drop candy by large spoonfuls onto buttered foil. Let sit until cool.
