Add nuts and let cook in syrup mixtures about 3 minutes or until they turn golden brown. Add baking soda and remove from heat. Mixture will foam. Add butter and vanilla. Pour into buttered jelly roll pan or 2 nine inch square pans, as soon as foaming subsides. Break up candy when completely cooled. Makes about 2 lbs. of candy.
