Yield :
1 cup pecan halves



  1. Combine sugar, water, vanilla extract and salt in a sauté pan. Bring to a boil.
  2. Add pecans and toss into syrup. Cook a few minutes and until most of the syrup is evaporated. Remove from heat. Stir pecans until a white grainy coating develops on their surface.
  3. Turn heat back on to medium and toss pecans until white coating caramelizes and they sound “dry”.
