Candied Pecans:


  1. Lightly oil a medium size non-stick frying pan.
  2. Add all candied pecan ingredients into the pan and stir to combine.
  3. Bring to a light boil on medium-high heat, stirring occasionally with a wooden spoon. Once the maple sugar flakes melt and the mixture begins to bubble, simmer for approx 10 minutes more, continuing to stir occasionally.
  4. While mixture is simmering, prepare a baking tray lined with parchment paper. Once done cooking, remove from heat and immediately scoop it out onto the lined tray. Then immediately spread the nuts out with a wooden spoon. (note: you have to do the transfer and spreading of the nuts quickly, or else they'll begin to harden in the pan and will be difficult to extract.
  5. Allow the nuts to rest and cool for at least 30 mins, until the candied coating sets and becomes firm to the touch. Then snap the nuts into pieces, or break into individual units and enjoy! Store in an airtight container at room temp.
