Ingredients

  • 110 g pecans, roasted
  • 1 cup sugar
  • ½ cup water

Cook's notes

Oven temperatures are for conventional; if using fan-forced (convection), reduce the temperature by 20˚C. | We use Australian tablespoons and cups: 1 teaspoon equals 5 ml; 1 tablespoon equals 20 ml; 1 cup equals 250 ml. | All herbs are fresh (unless specified) and cups are lightly packed. | All vegetables are medium size and peeled, unless specified. | All eggs are 55-60 g, unless specified.

Instructions

Makes 1½ cups

Place the pecans in a single layer on a lined baking tray and set aside.

Combine the sugar and water in a saucepan over low heat. Stir to dissolve sugar, do not boil, increase to a medium heat and boil until a deep golden caramel colour.

Quickly pour the caramel over the pecan nuts to completely cover. Set aside at room temperature to harden.

Roughly chop into approximately 1 cm chunks and use as required.

 

Cook's notes

• Store praline in an airtight container to prevent it from becoming sticky in humid conditions.
