Spiced caramelised pecans

Pecans have a natural maple flavour, with none of the bitterness of the obligatory Christmas walnut. Spiced caramel makes them irresistible.


Preparation method

  1. Break the cardamom pods open and remove the seeds.

  2. Add them to a frying pan with the pecan nuts and ground ginger, cook over a medium heat for one minute.

  3. Pour five tablespoons of the sugar over the pecans and let it melt, bubble and caramelise.

  4. Tip the caramelised nuts into a bowl and dust with cinnamon and a final sprinkle of sugar.
