Easy Candied Pecans

Our trees gifted us with a generous amount of Pecans this year.  It was so exciting going out every morning and gathering them up, but shelling them was not fun at all.

I knew Felicity and I would need snacks on our road trip, but I didn't want to spend a lot of money on junk so before we left we made a bunch of simple candied pecans to take on the road.

This is so quick, easy and fun to do I had to share....

Here's what you need:

3 Cups of Sugar 
1 Cup of Water
1/2 teaspoon Cream of Tarter
Pecans (I think I used a little under a pound)

First stir sugar, cream of tarter & water over low/medium heat until sugar dissolves.

Then turn up the heat, stop stirring, and let the mixture boil until the clear syrup turns gold.

Once it turns gold immediately remove it from the heat and mix in the pecans.

Then pour them out onto a lined baking sheet sprayed with a bit of oil.

Once they harden break then apart and eat!

Felicity and I are still having lots of fun visiting Alabama.  I found these super cute flip flops for $4 at a Charlotte Russo store1

.... and we have another new Alabama retailer in Ozark, AL.  I will have a full tour of the boutique later this week.  I don't have all the photos edited yet, but here's one of my little sales assistant having a bit of a melt-down on their cute painted cement floor!

Your work days are always interesting, when your sales assistant is two.
