Information:

  • Servings: 1 cup
  • Prep Time: 5 min
  • Cooking Time: 15 min
  • Total Time: 20min

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup raw pecans
  • 1 tbsp citrus juice we used mandarin
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup

Instructions:

  1. Preheat your oven to 150°C
  2. In a small bowl, combine the pecans, citrus juice and maple syrup and stir vigorously. Make sure that the syrup and juice is combined and that the pecans have been coated nicely.
  3. Pour the pecans and syrup/juice mixture into a pan over low to medium heat and stir continuously for 5-10 minutes. It's very important that you don't let the pecans sit too long as they will burn very easily. You'll know they're ready when there is very little of the syrup/juice mixture and you can smell the amazing scent of toasted pecans.
  4. Place the pecans on a flat tray in a single layer on a layer of baking paper. Try and make sure that no pecans are touching. Bake for 10-15 minutes while keeping a close eye to make sure that you don't burn your pecans.
  5. Your pecans will be done when they have a nice, glossy dark brown glaze. Pull them out, let them cool and put them on/in whatever floats your boat!

Notes:

This recipe is based on 1 cup of glazed pecans. If you want more or less, adjust the amount of citrus juice and maple syrup you add depending on how many pecans you use.
This is a fun recipe that can be customised to suit your preferences or intended use of the final product. Experiment with different citrus fruits for some amazing variations.
