Description

Salty with just a hint of sweet maple flavour.


Scale

Ingredients

  • 2 lbs of Pecans
  • 4 tablespoons Maple Syrup
  • 4 Egg Whites
  • 2 teaspoons Vanilla
  • 4 tablespoons Water
  • 1 cup Organic Maple Sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon coarsely ground Celtic sea salt

Instructions

  1. Mix egg whites, vanilla, maple syrup, and water in a 2 quart bowl. Stir briskly with a fork until lightly frothy.
  2. Add pecans and stir well to completely coat.
  3. Allow pecans to absorb some of the liquid for 5 – 10 minutes.
  4. Sprinkle maple sugar over saturated pecans.
  5. Stir well, by hand, until maple sugar is evenly distributed. Do not be so vigorous as to break the pecans.
  6. Pour out on buttered baking sheet. Spread into a single layer, leaving some pecans touching others, if you want them to clump together after baking.
  7. Sprinkle coarsely ground Celtic Salt lightly over the top of the pecans.
  8. Preheat oven to 275*F. Bake pecans for 45 minutes, stirring every 15 minutes, until golden brown and dry.
  9. Remove baking tray from oven and put on to a cooling rack. Allow pecans to cool completely before storing in an air tight container.

Notes

  • To package for gift giving, place in cellophane bags and tie with a cheerful ribbon. Place filled and sealed cellophane bags in a cookie tin for gifting. Alternatively fill a mason jar with the candied pecans. Cover with a bright piece of gingham or a seasonal printed fabric. Close with a lid and seal, and tie with a holiday ribbon.
