How to Make Caramelized Pecans

By Edited Apr 16, 2014 0 3



Caramelized Pecans

Caramelized pecans are sugar coated nuggets with a rich, delicious taste.
Bet you can't eat just one!

What you'll need;
vegetable cooking spray
3/4-cup sugar
2-tablespoons water
1-teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4-teaspoon cream of tarter
2-cups pecan halves
aluminum foil
air tight container
heavy medium sized saucepan

Step 1...Spray a sheet of aluminum foil and 2 forks with cooking spray.

Step 2...In the saucepan combine, sugar, water, vanilla, and cream of tarter. Cook over
medium-low heat; stirring frequently, cook for about 10 minutes.
While cooking use a pastry brush dipped in hot water to wash down any sugar crystals
that form on the sides of the saucepan.

Step 3...Stir in the pecans and increase the heat to medium. Stirring occasionally, cook
for about another 10 minutes or until the sugar begins to caramelize.
Stirring constantly, cook 1 to 2 minutes until sugar is caramelized and pecans are golden
brown. (Watch very closely to prevent from burning).

Step 4...Spread on aluminum foil. Use the forks to separate the pecans, allow to cool.
Store in an air tight container.

Makes about 2-1/2-cups caramelized pecans.

This recipe does not work well if doubled.

This is so simple! I tried caramelized walnuts for a recipe and they didn't turn out very well. I'm going to use this recipe on the walnuts and hopefully I'll have a better result. Thanks!
