Maple ginger grilled roasted pecans

This recipe is super easy and produces a subtly sweet, exotic tasting, deep colored nut. But you must use real maple syrup, none of the artificial pancake syrups allowed. I prefer the less expensive Grade B which has a stronger flavor.

Makes. 1 pound

Preparation time. 30 minutes

Cooking time. 30 minutes

Cooling time. 2 hours

Ingredients

2 tablespoons butter

1 pound raw pecan halves

1/4 cup grade B maple syrup

1/2 teaspoon ginger powder

1/2 teaspoon Morton's kosher salt

Option. Feel free to swap out the ginger and substitute cinnamon if you wish.

Method

1) Fire up. Preheat your grill/smoker to 225°F in the indirect zone.

2) Cook. Melt the butter in a saucepan. Add the nuts and coat. Stir in the maple syrup, ginger, and salt.

3) Place on an oiled grill topper and smoke for 30 minutes, stirring and flipping after 15 minutes. Take them off, spread the out in a pan and let them cool and harden thoroughly for about 2 hours.

4) Serve. Once the nuts have cooled completely, serve or store in an airtight container.
