Gluten Free Candied Pecans

Nothing says holiday more than a big bowl of nuts.  That’s right, growing up I specifically remember there always being a big bowl of nuts- still in there shell, along with nutcrackers at holiday gatherings.  Although it looks great and is fun to do, I found it a bit frustrating, as I was never able to keep any of the nuts “whole” while removing the shells.  These days nuts have become a staple in my diet and I have been preparing them different ways for variety in taste and texture.  This specific candied pecan recipe requires a bit of time, but is well worth it.  They are great served along a fruit and cheese platter or make a great snack anytime.  Stay festive and go nuts!
