  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C).
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone liner, and roast the pecans for 8 to 10 minutes, until slightly crispy and fragrant.
  3. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, warm the maple syrup and spices for about 5 minutes, until warm and slightly bubbling.
  4. Stir in the warm roasted pecans and filtered water. Fold through for 3 to 4 minutes stirring constantly until the nuts caramelize, and the liquid reduces, is completely absorbed, crystalizes, and the pecans are dry. 
  5. Spread the pecans back on the lined baking tray, and allow to cool and harden for about 20 minutes.
  6. Store in a sealed container.
