I do like candied pecans. Those nuts are naturals for some great American confections. Pecan pie, pralines. That recipe at the link looks great. The oily richness of the pecans is the key, and combining that with good roasting is magic. I seldom get them because anything made with pecans, especially pecan pie, is super high in calories. But when I do, I enjoy them thoroughly. I am long overdue for some, but am holding out until I go to the South again and get some of the "gooooood stuff". If you like pecan pie, also try making it with walnut halves instead. It's really good.
