This Roasted Pecans With Maple Syrup is very addictive, and best of all, it's easy to make. The pecans are lightly sweet, salty, peppery, and with a slight hint of spiciness. So, why don't you try making some for the holiday season?
Roasted Pecans With Maple Syrup
1 1/2 Cup Pecans
1/4 Cup Dried Cranberries
1 Tbsp Lemon Juice
1/4 Cup Maple Syrup (Amber)
1 tsp Dried Pepper Flakes
1/4 tsp Freshly Ground Black Pepper
1/8 tsp Sea Salt or to taste
Combine all the ingredients in a saucepan and bring it to a boil over high heat.
Reduce the heat to medium, and simmer for about 10 to 15 minutes or until all the pecans and cranberries are well coated with maple syrup.
Spread the mixture in a single layer on a lightly greased baking sheet and let dry for about 1 hour.
Preheat the oven to 300˚F. Roast the pecan mixture for about 30 to 35 minutes. Let cool completely before serving.
