Mr. Martin's Maple-Glazed Pecans


By Deirdre Imus, The Imus Ranch Cooking for Kids and Cowboys

Use these crunchy sweet pecans on salads, with desserts, or on stir-fried veggies.  You can use the same recipe to make glazed walnuts, as well.

Preparation Time: 3 min.

2     Cups raw pecans
1/2  Cup maple syrup
1/4  Cup raw unrefined sugar
1     Tablespoon salt


Cook Time: 15 min.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  Spread the pecans on a baking sheet and toast until lightly browned and fragrant, 8-10 minutes.  Remove them from the oven and set aside.
Heat the maple syrup and sugar in a medium saucepan over medium heat, stirring frequently until boiling.  Boil the mixture for 2 minutes, and then add the toasted pecans.  Continue cooking, stirring to coat the pecans, about 30 seconds more.  Spread the pecans into a baking sheet to cool.  Sprinkle with salt.

Makes 2.5 cups
