Recipe Servings
3 cups

2 cups sugar
3/4 cup Florida's Natural® Premium Orange Juice
1 tbsp. grated orange peel
3 cups pecan halves

Mix orange juice and sugar in a 2-quart saucepan.

Bring to a boil over medium heat. Reduce heat and cook about 15 to 20 minutes, to the soft-ball stage (235°F degrees on candy thermometer). Be sure not to overcook.

Remove from heat. Add orange peel and pecans. Stir until mixture turns a creamy color, about 7 to 10 minutes. Pour onto waxed paper.

When cool, break apart and store in airtight container.
