Happy Pralines Day!
Happy National Pralines Day. Not sure who came up with this national holiday but it's a sweet one. Here's a recipe for Dark Sugar Pralines, darker than most because of the brown sugar, but creamy as well. It's from "Cooking in Cajun Country," a cookbook-travelogue by my twin Chere Dastugue Coen and "Cajun" Carl Breaux of Lafayette, Louisiana. It's out of print now, but still available as an ebook. Note: When making pralines, remember that humidity will affect the consistency.
