People love these nuts, and often ask me for the recipe. So here it is, Easy and Tasty Candied Pecans!
- 1 egg white
- 1 Tablespoon cold water
- 1 pound pecan halves, or walnuts (about 4 cups)
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg, freshly grated
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
Preheat oven to 250 degrees F. Grease rimmed baking sheet with butter (optional).
Place nuts in a large mixing bowl. In a separate bowl, mix dry ingredients thoroughly. In a small bowl, beat egg white with water until thick and foamy. Pour egg white mixture over nuts and toss them with your hands until they are thoroughly coated. Add sugar mixture and mix well.
Spread nuts on baking sheet and bake for one hour. Turn nuts once after about thirty minutes.
