Pralines, American

February 19, 2013

Pralines are a confection made from nuts and sugar syrup.  In Europe, pralines used local ingredients such as hazelnuts or almonds.

American pralines split from the French; they incorporate milk or cream into the caramelized syrup to produce a softer texture.

And of course, pecans replace the almonds.

American pralines are quintessentially New Orleans: pecans and sugarcane are grown in close proximity.

These pralines come from Southern Candymakers in the New Orleans French Quarter.
