1 cup pecan halves

1/4 cup brown sugar

1 Tbsp olive oil

1 Tbsp balsamic vinegar

1 Tbsp Tastefully Simple Warm in the Oven Mulling Spice

Candied Pecans:
Prepare a large sheet of parchment paper or foil for cooling pecans.

Stir sugar, mulling spice, oil, and vinegar in a large skillet over medium heat until sugar melts and syrup bubbles, about 3 minutes. Mix in pecans and stir until nuts are toasted and syrup coats them evenly, 5-6 minutes. Turn nuts out onto prepared parchment paper, sprinkle with a dash more mulling spice (optional, but if you don’t try it you won’t know what you are missing) and separate warm sticky nuts using 2 forks. Cool completely. Pecans can be prepared way in advance (up to 1 month) and stored in an airtight container.

Serve garnished on a mixed greens salad tossed with sliced pears or tart granny smith apples

Capers are little Mediterranean pickled flower buds that give any sauce or dish a bit of a tang, but they’re not spicy at all. After the buds are harvested by hand, they are dried in the sun, and then pickled in vinegar and salt. The curing brings out their tangy lemony flavor, much the same as green olives. They make Our Tastefully Simple Artichoke and Caper Slow Cooker Sauce delicious and unique!
