Citrus-Candied Pecans

Yield about 6 cups


  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • Grated rind and juice of 1 orange
  • Juice of 1/2 lemon

How to Make It

  1. Combine sugar and flour in a medium-size heavy saucepan; mix well. Add milk and butter; bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Stir in orange rind and juice and lemon juice. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until mixture reaches soft ball stage (240°).
