Maple Spice Pecans

Maple Spice Pecans
Perfect for serving with cheeses, or jar up with a ribbon for a gift!  

75g (3/4 cup) pecan halves
40g (2 tbsp.) maple syrup
2 tsp. vegetable oil
1 tsp. sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
1⁄2 tsp. Garam Masala (or another favourite spice blend, or even a pinch of cayenne) 
1 small wheel of local brie (we love Gunn’s Hill Brigid Brie)
1 small baguette

  1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and preheat oven to 375F.  
  2. Toast pecans on baking sheet in oven for 3-4 minutes
 (it's ok to do this while oven is preheating.  Actually ideal, as it's a gentle heat).  
  3. Place syrup and oil in a frying pan and bring to a boil over medium-high heat
  4. Toss toasted pecans in syrup mixture, tossing to coat well.   Scrape back onto baking sheet. Sprinkle with sugar, salt & garam masala and return to oven for 5 minutes. Let cool completely.
  5. Serve with brie cheese and warm baguette!

NOTE: You can easily double or triple this recipe!   Nuts will stay crisp & delicious in an airtight container for several weeks.
