I recently had the pleasure of trying a new syrup .Golden Eagle Syrup made in Alabama.As a candy maker I’m always looking for new products to try. I welcomed the challenge of creating something with it. The syrup is not what someone from the north/ Midwest (like me) is use to. We have maple or corn syrup.Golden Eagle is a unique flavor.I would call it a honey syrup. So making these pecans was taking a basic candied pecan recipe up a notch 😉
Super simple to whip up!
1/4 cup Golden Eagle Syrup
1/8 cup sugar
1/8 cup butter
1 1/2 cup pecan halves
Spray with non stick spray and heat skillet on medium high heat. Add butter, sugar, and syrup. Blend well,add pecans and stir and toss constantly. Cook for 4 mins. Keep a close eye on them. If syrup starts to darken too much they will burn. Pour out on to parchment paper.. Sprinkle with sea salt. Let cool and set about 1 hour.
These are great to snack or top an arugala strawberry salad.
