  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 ½ tablespoons Florida’s Natural orange juice
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar

  • Pinch of nutmeg
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 ½ cups pecan halves


  1. Melt butter in a medium skillet.
  2. Add Florida’s Natural orange juice, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt to the mixture, stirring constantly to avoid overcooking.  Bring to a simmer.
