These candied pecans make the perfect gift, office party side dish, snack or horsd’oeuvre!!
pecan halves – 1 pound, about 4 cups
egg whites – 1
water – 1 Tbsp
raw honey – 1/2 cup, liquified (I set my honey jar in a cup of hot water to liquify)
ground cinnamon – 1 tsp
sea salt – 1/2 tsp
Preheat oven to 250º F.
Line a shallow, rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
Place egg white and water in a large bowl. Stir with a whisk until frothy (think bubble bath).
Add pecans and stir well with a wooden spoon until they are evenly coated.
Combine honey, salt, and cinnamon in a liquid measuring cup. Pour over nuts and stir well to evenly coat.
Transfer pecans to the lined baking sheet. Arrange in a single layer using a rubber spatula.
NOTE: Discard any leftover liquid that may be left in the bowl.
Bake for 60 to 90 minutes, stirring at approximately every 15 minutes.
Remove from oven and immediately transfer to a glass baking dish to cool.
NOTE: It is very important to remove the nuts from the parchment before they cool—they will stick.
Once cool, break into pieces and store in an airtight container at room temperature.
