Directions for: Chuck's Candied Pecans


2 cup white sugar

1 cup water

2 cup pecans

Pinch of sea salt

Pinch of cayenne pepper


1. In a pan on medium heat add your sugar, and your water.

2. Gently stir with a spoon to ensure that the sugar is completely dissolved before it comes to a boil.

3. Let it go for approximately 20 minutes on medium heat – you are looking for a nice amber color and slow bubbling.

4. Cut the heat.

5. In the pan, add your pecans and toss to cover. While tossing, add a pinch of salt and a pinch of cayenne pepper.

6. Serve them crumbled in a salad, on a dessert or just on their own.
