Caramelized Pecans

These nuts are especially good as a topping for: Weeds with Pecans and Fruit.

Roast in frying pan, large enough so nuts are in one layer, over medium-high heat:

Pecans
1 t sugar/12-15 nuts

Cook, stirring constantly, until sugar has melted onto the nuts, about 3-5 minutes. Be careful not to burn! Sugar will caramelize and turn golden brown very quickly once this process has started.  Be sure nuts are coated as evenly as possible with the sugar glaze and then remove to a cool plate to cool.
