Notes

As a southern girl I grew up with a huge Pecan tree in the backyard, so from a young age I grew to love pecans. I find they are best roasted in a bit of oil and salted. This recipe for candied pecans is a close second. As soon as these were done I could hardly stop eating them.

If you prefer you could use a mixed variety, whichever you choose make sure the nuts are unsalted. This recipe is a great holiday gift giving idea.
