Low Cholesterol, Cholesterol-Free, Trans-fat Free, High Fiber, Very low in sodium, Low Sodium


946 ml pecan halves
1.4 l water
boiling, or more
237 ml sugar
473 ml vegetable oil


NOTE: This dish must be started a full 24 hours before you plan to serve it.

Put pecans in a large pot or heat-proof bowl.

Cover with boiling water and let them soak 3 minutes.

Drain the pecans and spread them in a single layer on a large platter or non-rusting cookie sheet.

Cover with sugar and stir until pecans are completely coated with the sugar.

(The sugar will dissolve slightly.)

You might have to add water if the nuts are too dry for the sugar to stick.

Transfer the sugared nuts to a dry platter and set them aside to air-dry overnight.

They really need to dry for 24 hours.

When ready to serve the pecans, bring the oil almost to the smoking point in a wok or large pot.

Fry one quarter of them at a time, being careful not to let them burn.

The sugar will melt.

Carefully remove the cooked nuts from the hot oil with a strainer and put them on a heatproof glass platter.

Fry each quarter of the nuts individually so all of them will get hot enough for the sugar to melt.

Serve immediately.
