This recipe is a wee bit different from MissDaisy’s, hence the title;-D
Candied Pecans II
2 1/2 cups pecan halves
2 tsp vegetable oil
1 cup granulated sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
3/4 tsp salt
1/4 cup water
1 tspvanilla extract
Put pecans and oil in a flat baking pan. Stir until pecans are coated. Roast in 300° oven 20 to 25 minutes, stirring frequently.
Cool. Combine sugar, cinnamon, salt, and water in a saucepan. Cook, stirring, over medium heat until sugar is dissolved.
Boil to 236° of a candy thermometer, or to soft ball stage.* Remove from heat. Blend in vanilla. Add pecans and stir until mixture is creamy.
Turn out onto waxed paper and use a fork to separate pecans.
*To Test for Soft Ball Stage
A small amount of syrup dropped into chilled water forms a ball, but is soft enough to flatten when picked up with fingers (234° to 240°).
