Black Walnut Candy 

 Amt  Measure  Ingredient  
 ---  -------  -------------------------
 1    cup      white sugar
 1/8  tsp      salt
 1/2  tsp      soda
 1/2  cup      buttermilk
 1/2  tsp      maple flavoring

 3    tbsps    butter

Combine the sugar, salt, soda and buttermilk in a heavy pan. 
Cook to 235 degrees on a candy thermometer stirring constantly. 
You will need a fairly heavy deep narrow pan as this mixture foams 
as you cook it. Remove from the heat and stir in the maple flavoring, 
chopped walnuts and butter. Beat either by hand or with a mixer until 
thick and creamy. 
Drop by small teaspoonfuls onto waxed paper and let cool. Store in 
airtight container. * (it is not a good idea to sub. english or any 
other nuts...ruins the taste)
