  • Mix butter into warm pecans and toss to coat. Turn heat to medium; add maple syrup and stir pecans with a heat-proof or wooden spoon until syrup begins to bubble, 1 to 2 minutes. Turn heat down to low and continue stirring pecans until syrup begins to caramelize onto the pecans, about 5 minutes more. Remove skillet from heat, sprinkle salt over pecans, and stir.

Cook's Note:

Substitute coconut oil for the butter, if desired.

These are the best sweet roasted pecans I have ever made or eaten. There is no heavy sugar coatin but just a glaze that lightly sweeetens the salted nuts. I used half the syrup called for in the recipe and they were still sweet enough for my taste. This is the recipe Ihave been looking for for years! Read More

Very tasty! I like to make these to add to my salad greens - excellent with fruit. I use a small cast iron skillet and the pecans cook up in no time! Read More
