Dulces de Naranja (Orange Candy)

3 cups sugar
1/4 cup water
1 cup evaporated milk, undiluted
dash salt
2 teaspoons orange peel, grated
1 cup black walnuts, chopped

Put 1 cup sugar into a heavy skillet and stir slowly with a wooden
spoon over medium heat until the sugar is melted and caramelized
to a golden brown color. Add the water and stir until the sugar
is completely dissolved. Add the remaining 2 cups sugar, evaporated
milk and salt. Place over low heat and stir constantly until the
mixture boils. Cook, stirring frequently, until it reaches the soft
ball stage (236 degrees). Remove from heat; cool to lukewarm. Do
not stir. Add the orange peel and nuts. Beat vigorously until the
candy loses its gloss and will hold its shape when dropped from a
spoon. Pour into lightly greased (margarine) 8 x 8 inch baking
dish. Cool until set. Cut into squares before the candy becomes
too firm.

NOTES : This is a traditional Mexican candy with a creamy consistency
like fudge.
