Oh Nuts

Nuts can be cracked, peeled, busted, and purchased recipe ready. There are some that may be allergic to them and we must be careful as it is a serious food allergy. Nuts are also seriously delicious for those that can enjoy them.

Nuts come in many different shapes and sizes. There is a nut for every taste bud.

Nuts are both delicious and nutritious. Nuts are rich in protein, calcium, and vitamin E. Nuts also provide large amounts of healthy fats.

Nuts are perfect for snacking. They can also help pull us through til the next meal. Its a guiltless form of snacking and keeps hunger away. This recipe for candied pecans is sweet and good

1 1/2 tablespoons packed brown sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons water
1/8 teaspoon vanilla
1/8 teaspoon kosher salt
1 cup pecan halves

In a small bowl, combine brown sugar, water, vanilla, and kosher salt, stirring to combine (don't worry that the sugar and salt won't all be dissolved). Set this at-the-ready, next to your stove, as this recipe goes really quickly.
In a medium-large saucepan over medium heat, toast pecans for 2-3 minutes, stirring occasionally to prevent burning. When you begin to smell a lovely, nutty aroma, they're done.
Quickly drizzle the sugar mixture into the pan, on top of the pecans, stirring the nuts as you drizzle. Stir constantly for about 15 seconds, until the pecans are thoroughly coated in the sugar mixture. Immediately remove from heat so they don't burn.
Spread the pecans on a piece of parchment to cool. Once cooled, you can break the nuts apart, if needed.
Enjoy immediately or store in an airtight container. The pecans will be slightly sticky at first, but the coating hardens further within a few hours.
