List of Ingredients
- 2 cups of Rancho Pecana pecans
- Unsalted butter
- 4 cups pure maple syrup
- 2 cups heavy cream
- ½ tsp kosher salt
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Toast pecans on a baking sheet for 10-15 minutes. Allow the pecans to cool and then coarsely chop.
- Meanwhile, butter loaf pan. Attach the candy thermometer to a large pot and set over medium heat. Cook maple syrup, cream, and salt, whisking constantly and bring to a boil. Continue to boil until the thermometer reaches 238 degrees fahrenheit for about 40 minutes. Immediately remove from heat and allow to cool to 130 degrees F about 40 minutes.
