     3/4 c  Buttermilk
     1/8 ts Salt
       2 c  Sugar
       2 tb Butter
       2 c  Pecan halves
       1 ts Baking soda
   Stir together buttermilk, sugar, pecans, salt and butter in 4-5 qt
   micro-safe dish.  Microwave on high 12 minutes, stirring at 4 minute
   intervals. Stir in baking soda until foamy. Cook on high 1 minute. (This
