- 1-1/2 cups sugar
- 1/4 cup water
- 3 tablespoons orange juice concentrate
- 2 cups pecan halves
- 1/2 teaspoon grated orange peel
- In a heavy saucepan, combine sugar, water and orange juice concentrate. Cook over medium-high heat, without stirring, until a candy thermometer reads 238° (soft-ball stage). Remove from the heat; stir in pecans and orange peel. Beat with a spoon until mixture thickens and loses its gloss, about 2 minutes. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto waxed paper to harden. Store in an airtight container. Yield: 2-1/2 dozen.
