Adapted from the Southern Living 1980 Annual Recipes, Page 31
The recipe called for 1/4 tsp ground cloves. I did not have any so I omitted it.
- 1 cup sugar
- 2 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
- 1/4 cup water
- 2 cups pecans
At first I thought I had done something wrong as the pecans did not appear to be drying, but after an hour of cooling, the sugar coating had dried onto the pecans and I was able to separate the pecans.
