Maple Citrus Roasted Pecans

Maple Citrus Roasted Pecans

8 ounces Raw Pecan Halves
1/4 cup pure Maple Syrup (we prefer Grade B ~ the darker, more flavorful syrup)
pinch of fine Sea Salt
1 teaspoon Orange Extract
pinch of ground Ginger

Pre heat the oven to 350 degrees F with the rack in the middle. Place nuts in a single layer on a parchment or Silpat lined rimmed baking sheet. Roast until fragrant about 10 minutes. Flip once during with a pair of tongs. Reduce oven heat to 300 degrees F.

In a medium sauce pan bring the rest of the ingredients to a boil over medium high heat. Turn off the heat. Toss roasted pecans in the mixture with a heat proof spatula.

Evenly spread the pecans back onto the lined cookie tray. Be sure they are in a single layer. Bake nuts for 20-25 minutes. Remove from oven and let the nuts cool before serving.

Store in a air tight container in the refrigerator.
