Recipe Notes

If you must caramelize the pecans, here are the steps. In a small skillet over medium heat, stir ¼ cup of brown sugar together with the pecans. Continue stirring gently until the sugar has melted and caramelized the pecans. Carefully transfer the pecans onto waxed paper and allow to cool, then break into pieces.

I’d highly suggest using freshly ground pepper as outlined in the recipe. It provided a much more peppery presence than that of pre-ground canned (and no – adding more for the can just doesn’t cut it).
