Maple Citrus Roasted Pecans
8 ounces Raw Pecan Halves

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
