BARTON'S PEPPERED PECANS
Barton's Peppered Pecans
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1 Tablespoon kosher salt
- 2 Tablespoons coarsely ground black pepper
- 1 c pecan halves
1 c pecan halves
Combine the sugar, salt, and pepper.
Heat a very heavy skillet over high heat until hot enough to evaporate a drop of water on contact. Add the pecans and toss for a minute to bring the nut oil to the surface.
Sprinkle the nuts with half of the spice mixture and shake the pan vigorously until the sugar melts, about 1 minute. Add the remaining mixture and continue shaking the pan until the sugar melts again and coats the pecans.
Immediately turn the nuts out onto a baking sheet. When they are cool enough for you to handle, separate with your fingers. Let cool completely before storing in an airtight container.
