- 3 cups white sugar
- 1 cup milk
- 3 tablespoons light corn syrup
- 1/2 cup mashed banana (2 small bananas, very ripe)
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup butter
Line an 8 inch square pan with foil and spray the foil with cooking spray. Alternatively, butter the pan. Combine sugar, milk, corn syrup, banana, and salt in large 3 quart saucepan. Mix thoroughly. Bring to boil on high heat, stirring constantly. Reduce heat to medium and continue to boil mixture without stirring until it reaches 238F or until a small amount forms a soft ball in cold water.
Remove from heat and stir in nutmeg, vanilla, and butter. Let cool to 120F. Beat the mixture until it becomes very thick and loses some of its gloss. Quickly pour into a buttered 8" square pan.
