NOTE: if you only have salted cashews, as I did, rinse them in a colander
and dry them with a paper towel.

Line baking sheet or shallow baking pan with foil. Butter foil and metal
spatula; set aside.

Combine nuts, sugar, corn syrup and salt in a 6-cup microwave-safe bowl.
Cook, uncovered, 4 minutes on High; stir well and cook 4 minutes longer on
High. Mixture will be boiling.

Stir in butter and vanilla. Microwave on High 2 minutes. Add baking soda
and stir until light and foamy. Quickly pour into prepared pan. Spread to
about 1/4 inch thickness with spatula.

Let cool, then break into pieces. Store in airtight container. (I wrapped
the pieces in plastic wrap.) Makes 1 pound.
