Oh NUTS Glazed ones.TNT

Place 1 lb of pecans and 1/2 cup orange zest in a large bowl mix well. Spread this mixture on a buttered pan, jelly roll will work. Also a low sided cookie sheet. Set aside. Place lightly packed brown sugar and 1/2 cup of milk in an 9x13 enamel saucepan. Bring mixture to boil over med-high heat. Add 1 tab. white vinegar and boil the syrup til it reaches 230 on a candy thermometer or til the syrup forms a soft ball when tested in ice water. Pour the syrup over nuts,mixing to coat evenly. Let cool to room temp. Seperate nuts
enjoy or make closer to holidays and package with pretty bags,boxes pretty ribbions. Makes a nice gift.

I know :( Was thinking of using fructose, still sugar but it's so much sweeter you use much less. Maybe I'll just make it as is and give them as gifts.

Halloween! That's a good idea. How about putting them in Jars marked rats brains (pecans) and tails (zest) with some red chocolate sauce marked rats blood for dipping!?
