Post Candied Pecans

CANDIED PECANS

1/2 cups pecan halves
2 teaspoons vegetable oil or butter
1 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup water
1 teaspoon vanilla 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)
