Look at these candied-yummies. They are going into a watermelon and goat cheese on baby greens salad for dinner.
First I toasted raw pecans in a hot pan [on med-low], coated with melted butter, for a couple of minutes (until they started to brown), stirring often. Next, I free-poured maple syrup — enough to coat plus a bit more. I stirred for a couple of minutes and took them off the heat, still stirring occasionally while they cooled. Done!
Spud won't go near the salad but he'll eat some of the components. That is, the non-green ones.
