SUGARED PECANS

I have seen several recipes for these on JAP. However this is one that I have had for years and is slightly different. It uses salt to make it both sweet and savory. I make these during the holidays and put them in small containers to keep on hand for unexpected guests. Everyone visiting gets a little gift to munch on as they leave. I really think some people "visit" just to get their pecans... Enjoy.
