Candied Pecans

3 cups raw pecan halves
3 tablespoons honey
3/4 teaspoon salt, plus a pinch

1. Position the racks in the lower and upper thirds of the oven and preheat the oven to 250F.

2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and spread the nuts on the pan. Warm in the oven for 5 minutes (warming the nuts helps prevent them from crystallzing the honey).

3. Meanwhile, pour the honey into a small saucepan and warm over medium heat.

4. Pour the nuts inot a bowl, add the honey, and sprinkle the nuts with a pinch of salt. Stir to coat the nuts evenly with honey.

5. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper and spread the nuts on the sheets. Sprinkle with the remaing 3/4 teaspoon salt. Bake for 2 hours, rotating pans halfway though baking.

6. Remove the pans from the oven and separate any nuts that cling together. Let the nuts cool on the pan. Store in an airtight container for up to 1 week.
