Does anyone have a recipe for candied pecans? I'd rather not use a candy thermometer. Thanks!

There are many recipes out there for salad with greens, pear or apple, blue cheese & candied pecans. Easy to make and usually not a big production.

I just made these as the recipe sounded too good to be true, and they are! Made half a recipe and that was more than enough. My only suggestion would be to maybe use less sugar or pulse the sugar a little finer. Most of the 'extra' sugar comes off when you flip the pecans every 15 minutes, but still I'd rather have less. Thought of adding a bit of cayenne pepper next time for a little sweet and savory. They crisp up as cool, hope you enjoy them, Cathy! BB

I got a recipe for maple-candied pecans from the internet years ago --don't remember where, but it is easy and thermometer-free. Bring 1/4 cup maple syrup to a boil. Add 1 c. pecan halves and stir to coat. Cook till liquid is almost gone, 3-4 minutes, stirring periodically. Turn out on silpat to cool,
