Candied Pecans

Candied Pecans

Print pagePDF pageEmail page

 

This recipe is probably my easiest.  For so little effort, the reward is simply delicious. 

Ingredients:

1 package of Halved Pecans
1 cup of white sugar
1/4 cup dark brown sugar
1/4 cup of ground cinnamon
1 tablespoon nutmeg
1 tablespoon cloves
Any other spice you’d like to add

Preparation:

Add the sugar mixture to a zip-lock bag. Put the pecans in a colander and rinse them with water (the sugar mixture will adhere better on wet pecans). Put the damp pecans in the plastic bag with sugar mixture. Shake well so all the pecans are coated. Sift the pecans out of the mixture using a slotted spatula (or spoon). (Reserve sugar mixture for your next batch of candied pecans.) Spread the pecans on a cookie sheet. Make sure the pecans do not touch. Put them in a pre-heated oven at 350 degrees. Bake for 20 minutes or until you smell the pecans. The purpose of baking is to caramelize and set the sugar to the pecans. Be careful not to overcook the pecans.

Let cool. Use a spatula to scrape the pecans from the cookie sheet. There are a 101 uses for candied pecans. I sprinkle them in salads, and snack on them while I watch TV.

  1. Hmm it looks like your site ate my first comment (it was extremely long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I had written and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog. I too am an aspiring blog writer but I’m still new to the whole thing. Do you have any tips for rookie blog writers? I’d certainly appreciate it.

  3. Have you ever thought about including a little bit more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is fundamental and all. However imagine if you added some great photos or videos to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with images and videos, this blog could certainly be one of the very best in its niche. Very good blog!

  8. Hi! I know this is kind of off-topic however I needed to ask. Does running a well-established website like yours require a lot of work? I’m brand new to operating a blog however I do write in my journal every day. I’d like to start a blog so I can easily share my own experience and feelings online. Please let me know if you have any recommendations or tips for new aspiring blog owners. Thankyou!

  9. Hey there would you mind stating which blog platform you’re working with? I’m planning to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a difficult time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique. P.S Apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!

  14. I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the structure of your blog? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or two pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?

  15. This design is incredible! You certainly know how to keep a reader entertained. Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Wonderful job. I really enjoyed what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it. Too cool!

  17. With almost everything that seems to be developing within this area, all your viewpoints tend to be fairly radical. Having said that, I appologize, because I do not subscribe to your whole strategy, all be it exciting none the less. It would seem to everyone that your opinions are generally not totally justified and in reality you are your self not totally confident of the assertion. In any case I did enjoy looking at it.

  18. Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video to make your point. You clearly know what youre talking about, why waste your intelligence on just posting videos to your blog when you could be giving us something informative to read?

  19. Today, I went to the beach front with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had to tell someone!

Do you know any solutions to help prevent content from being ripped off? I’d truly appreciate it.
