Orange Cranberry Pecans

Make this…really, you need to make this.  I can’t send it to all of you and you need to taste these pecans, they are wonderful, amazing and very addictive.  I don’t know why you are still sitting there, go out and buy the ingredients…right now…go!

Orange Cranberry Pecans

Juice and zest of one orange

1/2 cup brown sugar

1/2 cup white sugar

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 tsp pepper

4 cups toasted pecans (toast at 350*F for six minutes)

1 pkg Craisins

In a medium saucepan combined the orange juice, zest, sugars, salt and pepper.  Bring to a rolling boil and add the pecans a handful at a time.  When all the nuts are added continue to cook until the liquid is absorbed.  Take the pan off the heat and add the Craisins and then stir until the nuts are dry.  Spread on wax paper and let cool completely.  Store in an airtight container.

Note:  I have made this a few more time now and I think there are too many cranberries…so I would advise cutting the amount of cranberries called for in the recipe in half.
