Spicy Lavender Pecans – A great superbowl treat!

0

Yes,  it is that time of year again when we  gather round the big screen television to watch the superbowl. Or for those who are not football fans at the least the half time show.  This North American tradition has become something more – its a celebration of friendship, family and food.  That food is usually pizza, wings and all kinds of snack foods but why not shake it up a bit and try something with a twist of lavender- yes I said lavender.  Here’s a recipe that we love with the added zest and herbal flavours of lavender.

 

 

 

 

Ingredients:                                                                                                              

1 cup of pecans

1/2 cup water

1/2 cup Sugar

2 dried red chile peppers

2 tsp  lavender

Method:

Combine the ingredients in a saucepan.  Bring to a boil over high heat  constantly stirring to avoid the sugar from burning.  Add the pecans and return to a boil. Reduce heat.  Simmer for 10 minutes.  Arrange the pecans evenly on a baking sheet.  Bake at 250 degrees until the pecans start to lightly brown.

Cool and serve.
