Yield:
4 to 6 servings
Level:
Easy

Ingredients
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1/2 orange, zested
  • 1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 cups toasted pecans
Directions
  • In a deep saucepan, combine the sugar, water, orange zest, and cinnamon and bring to a boil. Add the pecans and simmer, stirring, as the water evaporates. The glaze will be shiny and transparent at first, then turn opaque, and crystallize as the water cooks away.

  • When the nuts are completely coated with sugar crystals, they are done. Spread them out on a sheet pan to cool. (To wash the saucepan, soak it overnight.)

  • Notes about the recipe: These are great as a garnish or to enjoy with drinks. You can use different nuts and different spices if you want to experiment.
