DIRECTIONS

  • Use a large skillet. The pecans should be more or less in one layer. Nonstick works well.
  • Melt the butter in the skillet and add the hot pepper.
  • If you are using liquid artificial sweetener, add it now.
  • Add pecans to skillet and cook over medium heat.
  • Stir every 30 seconds.
  • After 2 or 3 minutes, stir them pretty much constantly until they just begin to brown.
  • Pecans burn quickly, so you do have to keep your eyes on them.
  • If the butter starts smoking before this point, kill the heat and call them done.
  • Stir in cinnamon, salt, and powdered sweetener if you're using it.
  • Remove from pan to bowl (pecans can still burn sitting in the hot pan).
  • When they are cool enough to taste, adjust seasonings if you want more salt or sweetener.
  • Carbohydrate Information:
  • 1/4 cup of pecans have 1 gram of effective carbohydrate plus 3 grams of fiber.
