FAQ's


  • How to make candied Pecans?



In a pan add sugar and let it start melting,then add butter and cook it till it caramelizes.


Once sugar melts and starts to caramelize,keep stirring it and do not let it burn.


Once it reaches the brownish color,switch off the heat.


Immediately add pecans to this,coat the pecans well with caramel then arrange them on parchment paper to harden.


  • How to grill peaches?



Use firm fresh peaches. Make sure they are well ripe but still the skin is not wrinkled.


Cut each peach into half,discard the seed and then make slices.


Do not make thin slices,each half should yield 2 to max 3 slices depending on the size of peach.


Toss them with little honey and olive oil and grill them on grilling pan or grill grates, and grill till marks appear on the sides of peaches.
