Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup Maple Balsamic
  • 1 teaspoon finely ground sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 cups pecans

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350oF.
  2. In a small saucepan, bring the balsamic vinegar to a boil, then reduce the heat until it is simmering.  Allow to simmer, uncovered, for about 10 to 12 minutes or until the liquid has reduced by 1/3 to 1/2 the total volume and is a thicker consistency.
  3. In a medium bowl, stir together the reduced Maple Balsamic, salt, and cinnamon.  Add the pecans and toss well to coat.
  4. Spread the pecans in a shallow baking pan and bake in the middle of the oven for 25 minutes, stirring once around the 15-minute mark.  Transfer to a sheet of parchment paper and let cool.  When cool enough to handle, break apart the pecans.
