Glazed Pecans

Pecans are such a nice addition to breads, salads, etc. I buy them at the supermarket glazed. I decided to make my own glazed pecans the other day and I added them to my salad. I just love the sweet, savoury and sharp combination in a salad. This was quite easy to make as well. I only had 1/2 a cup of pecans so my measurements are for that amount of pecans. You can double it up and garnish what ever you like or munch on it by itself. Perfect as a gift as well : )


















Ingredients

1/2 cup pecans
1/2 tablespoon butter
1/2 tablespoon dark brown sugar (you can use golden brown sugar)
1/2 tablespoon maple syrup

Method

Preheat oven to 350F. Combine butter, brown sugar, maple syrup in a small saucepan over low heat. Once butter and sugar's melted add the pecans. Cook and stir for 2 minutes or until pecans are coated. Remove from heat and line baking tray with parchment paper. Transfer pecans to baking tray and cook in the oven for 7 minutes. Let stand to cool for 25 minutes. Can be stored in a tight container up to 2 weeks. When giving as a gift write the use by date. : ) Enjoy!

  2. Lovely sounding pecans. I only seem to eat pecans in the winter (I've no idea why) and that sweet and savoury combination is very pleasant indeed.

    1. Autumn and winter seems to be a popular time for them as well. I see massive crate boxes of them in the very center of the produce isle and not just one crate 2 or 3.. It's for all those pecan pies for Thanksgiving :)

  11. I can never resist glazed nuts...usually when the wonderful aroma is wafting my way somewhere in Europe! Invariably they don't last long either...I seem to keep eating until the bag is empty! I'd never thought of making my own but yours look great! :-)
