National Praline Day

With tomorrow (June 24th) being National Praline Day, I figured I would take a moment and get your acquainted with one of the most slept on, yet irresistable treats there is on the face of this Earth.
French settlers brought Pralines to Louisiana, where both sugar cane and pecan trees were plentiful. 

During the 19th century, New Orleans chefs substituted pecans for almonds, added cream to thicken the confection, and thus created what became known throughout the American South as the praline. Pralines have a creamy consistency, similar to fudge.

Pralines are usually made by combining sugar (often brown), butter and cream or buttermilk in a pot on medium-high heat and stirring constantly, until most of the water has evaporated and it has reached a thick texture with a brown color.
Then they are usually dropped by spoonfuls onto waxpaper or a sheet of aluminum foil greased with butter, and left to cool.

These days companies such as Praline d’Antie, have upped the ante and taken Pralines, coffee drinking and afger dining desserts to a whole other level.
With flavors such as Vanilla Green Tea Pistachio, Irish Cream Macadamia, Orange Pecan and many many more, candy lovers and non candy lovers alike will find themselves searching for more once they have had a single bite. The deliciously rich texture the Pralines made by Praline d’Antie contain is something EVERYONE (especially those with a heightened palate who love coffee or tea after dinner) can enjoy.
Celebrate National Praline Day accordingly and get some quality Pralines tonight.
