    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      In a deep saucepan, combine the sugar, water and orange zest and bring to a boil. Add the pecans and simmer, stirring, as the water evaporates. The glaze will be shiny and transparent at first, then turn opaque, and crystallize as the water cooks away.
    2. 2
      When the nuts are completely coated with sugar crystals, they are done. Spread them out on a sheet pan to cool. (To wash the saucepan, soak it overnight.).

      My husband has been wanting me to find a recipe for orange pecans. Didn't know how these would be, but went ahead & doubled the recipe. Glad I did but might as well go ahead & make a second double batch because I don't think these will last long. Thanks for a great recipe!

      The orange taste really comes through in these nuts. Sweet and I loved the flavoring. Made for Photo Tag.
