sugar, sweet, pecans, nuts, candied,

I am totally not a nut person, I can do with our without.. but my grandmother on the other hand. She must have nuts.. like MUST. So when she came to me with this candied pecan recipe she had saved from a magazine clipping, I was like oh geez... I do actually like pecans, especially when they are super fresh. Pecans grace some of my favorite desserts like German Chocolate cake and Red Velvet cake, so I was ok with making this recipe. These candied pecans aren't just for dessert, as you can add them to salads as well, or just pop them in your mouth for a sweet snack.  I made this recipe and the sugar didn't quit caramelize like I thought it would, so I added it back to the pan, over a medium flame and just kept stirring the pecans until I began to see that syrup candy consistency that you would normally see on candied pecans.
