I love nuts in general, especially in salads (probably because I am one, a nut not a salad) and they "used" to sell glazed walnuts and pecans. I really miss them in my Walnut Pear Salad, so I decided to see if I could make them. It turns out it is quite easy and you could use any nut you choose.
1 1/2 cups whole pecans (or walnuts) 1/2 cup brown sugar 2 teaspoons butter
pinch of salt
Melt the butter and brown sugar together over medium heat, stir until the brown sugar is well incorporated, add a pinch of salt
Add your nuts and keep cooking until the grittiness is gone and your nuts are lightly toasted.
Place the nuts on a plate lined with either Wax or Parchment paper and let cool
