- 12oz pecans halves
- 1/2-2/3 cup grade B organic maple syrup
- 1 tsp Chinese 5-spice
- small pinch of salt
The pecans do not have to be brine soaked before roasting as Nourishing Traditions recommends, but they do taste better (a very buttery flavor) and are more easily digested.
Simmer all ingredients together on medium until all the liquid is gone. You will have to turn down the temperature later in the cooking to prevent burning. The syrup should start to crystalize. If it doesn’t add a little more syrup and continue cooking. Lay out on parchment to cool and dry.
These don’t last long. They also put on the pounds…
