From Nigel Slater's 12 Tastes of Christmas
Pecans have a natural maple flavour, with none of the bitterness of the obligatory Christmas walnut. Spiced caramel makes them irresistible.
Break the cardamom pods open and remove the seeds.
Add them to a frying pan with the pecan nuts and ground ginger, cook over a medium heat for one minute.
Pour five tablespoons of the sugar over the pecans and let it melt, bubble and caramelise.
Tip the caramelised nuts into a bowl and dust with cinnamon and a final sprinkle of sugar.
- 1 tbsp cardamom pods
- 1 tsp ground ginger
- 200g/7oz pecans
- 6 tbsp caster sugar
- 1 tbsp ground cinnamon
