Sweet Spicy and Salty Candied Pecans

We recently returned from my parent’s home, where we spent Thanksgiving. My dad has 8 or so very large pecan trees (4 are commercial and the others are ‘volunteers’). This year, one of the trees that hasn’t produced nuts for over 8 years really put out a crop. My dad had over 10 paper grocery bags already picked by the time we arrived. He picked 3 more paper bags in just a few days. Time to make sweet spicy and salty candied pecans.

I always make sure to make off with some of dad’s pecans. This time he gave us 3 pounds of the most perfect, tasty pecans ever. These pecans are like gold. This recipe for sweet spicy and salty candied pecans makes for a fantastic snack, if you can keep from eating all of the nuts before you make it.
