  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp ground cloves
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 cups pecan halves (8 oz) or 2 cups walnut halves (8 oz)


  1. Combine sugar, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, and water in a medium saucepan over medium heat, stirring constantly until sugar is dissolved.
  2. Continue cooking syrup, without stirring, to 238°F on candy thermometer, or until a little syrup dropped into cold water forms a soft ball.
  3. Remove from heat and add nuts, stirring gently until the mixture becomes creamy.
  4. Turn onto waxed paper (or a non-stick mat or jelly roll pan) and separate the nuts with a fork. Be careful because they will be hot. Let dry and store in an air-tight container.
