1 1/2 cups pecan nuts (or walnuts, if preferred)
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup water
1-2 tsp grated orange rind
- Put all the ingredients in a large heavy skillet, and cook over a medium heat until the water evaporates and the nuts have a sugary look.
- Pour the nuts onto a greased baking sheet, separating them quickly with a fork. Cool, and store in a sealed container.
