    1 teaspoon kosher salt
    1/2 teaspoon ground all spice
    1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
    1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    1/2 teaspoon cardamom
    1 pound pecan halves
    4 tablespoons unsalted butter
    1/4 cup packed light brown sugar
    2 tablespoons packed dark brown sugar
    2 tablespoons water

    Line a half sheet pan with parchment paper and set aside.

    Mix the salt, all spice, cayenne, cinnamon and cardamom together in a small bowl and set aside.

    Place the nuts in a 10-inch cast iron skillet and set over medium heat. Cook, stirring frequently, for 4 to 5 minutes until they just start to brown and smell toasted. Add the butter and stir until it melts. Add the spice mixture and stir to combine. Once combined, add both sugars and water, stirring until the mixture thickens and coats the nuts, approximately 2 to 3 minutes.

    Transfer the nuts to the prepared sheet/pan and separate them with a fork or spatula. Allow the nuts to cool completely before transferring to an airtight container for storage. Can be stored up to 3 weeks.
