    CUPS PECANS

  • 1/2

    CUP SUGAR

  • salad oil

Directions

In a 4 qt saucepan, heat water to boiling over high heat. Ad nuts and heat just to boiling. Cook 1 minute. Place nuts in colander and rinse well under hot running water. Drain well in colander. In lg bowl (using rubber spatula) gently stir warm/drained nuts with sugar until all sugar is dissolved. Heat oil until almost boiling. Use deep fryer if available. Using slotted spoon, add half the nuts to oil. Caution: when submerging the nuts in hot oil, go slowly so the oil doesn’t boil over causing a raging fire! Cook nuts til golden. Remove nuts with slotted spoon and put them back into the colander (with some paper toweling underneath). Toss them about so they don’t stick together. Sprinkle with salt and let cool on cookie sheet.
