Sugar 'n' Spice Pecans 0 Picture


  • 3/4 cup light corn syrup
  • 2 pounds sugar
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 3 pounds pecan halves



Step 1

Combine the corn syrup, sugar, and 1 cup water in a large heavy saucepan. Stir the mixture only until the sugar is completely moist. Place the saucepan over medium heat and cook until the mixture reaches 242 F ( firm ball stage). At that point, immediately remove from the heat and add the cinnamon. Stir with a long handled wooden spoon until the syrup settles or stops boiling.
Stir the pecan halves into the syrup all at once. Stir until all the pecans are coated completely and begin to separate from one another, and the sugar crystallizes. When the pecans are completely separated, pour out onto a cookie sheet and allow them to cool. Store in an airtight container.
Makes 3 pounds
