2 cups pecan halves
2 Tbsp butter
1/4 tsp cayenne or other hot pepper
Stevia equal to about 3 tsp sugar (See Stevia Exchange)
4 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
Use a large enough skillet so the pecans are in one layer.
Melt the butter in the skillet and add the hot pepper. If you are using liquid artificial sweetener, add it now.
Add pecans to skillet and cook over medium heat. Stir every 30 seconds. After 2 or 3 minutes, stir them constantly until they just begin to brown. Watch as they can burn easily. (If the butter starts smoking call them done.)
Stir in cinnamon, salt, and powdered sweetener if you’re using it.
Remove from pan and place in bowl so as not to burn.
When they seem cool enough to taste, you can adjust the seasonings.
