   Sprinkle 1/2 cup sugar in a heavy saucepan; place over
   medium heat.  Cook, stirring constantly, until sugar melts
   and syrup is light golden brown. Combine remaining 2-1/2
   cups sugar, milk, beaten egg, and salt, stirring well; stir
   in butter.  Stir butter mixture into hot caramelized sugar.

   further cooking.) Cook over medium heat, stirring
   frequently, until a candy thermometer registers 230 degrees

   wooden spoon to almost spreading consistency (about 5
