Winner, Winner Orange-Glazed Pecans

Yes, there is a winner for the blog anniversary drawing.  Much to the dismay of Miss Callie Mae there is no chicken dinner.  I do have a delicious recipe of Orange-Glazed Pecans to share.

1 cup sugar
1 tablespoon white corn syrup
1/4 cup evaporated milk
2 teaspoons orange rind, grated
2 tablespoons orange juice
2 1/2 cups pecan halves

Mix all ingredients except pecans, and bring to a boil in a cast iron skillet.  Boil for 4 minutes, stirring constantly.

Remove from heat and add pecans, coating them well with mixture.  Allow to cook in warm mixture for 1 minute.  

Pour onto waxed paper and let cool.  Separate into pieces and package with ribbon for a pretty presentation.

Wake up from your winter nap Callie Mae, it's time to choose a winner!

Pay attention and stop playing with those keys!

Since I can't keep Callie Mae on task, I asked AppleJack to choose a number and he choose number eight.  Congratulations #8 (Carmen), a package from Santa Thistle Manor will be coming your way.
