Ingredients

  • 2

    cups water

  • 1/2

    cup sugar

  • 1

    teaspoon ground allspice

  • 1/2

    teaspoon cayenne pepper

  • 1/2

    teaspoon paprika

  • 1

    cup pecan halves - (generous)

  • Vegetable oil for deep-frying

Directions

Combine 2 cups water, sugar, allspice, cayenne and paprika in heavy small saucepan. Bring to boil; boil until mixture registers 220 degrees on candy thermometer, about 3 minutes. Add pecans and cook until syrup clings to pecans, about 5 minutes. Drain pecans well. Pour enough oil into heavy large saucepan to reach depth of 1 inch. Heat oil to 350 degrees. Add pecans and fry until brown and crisp, about 2 minutes. Working quickly so that pecans don’t burn, use slotted spoon to transfer pecans to paper towels. Cool. (Can be made 1 week ahead. Store airtight at room temperature.) This recipe yields about 1 cup.
