So you want to make Canadian Fire? Well come along with me and I will show you how to satisfy your sweet tooth while keeping warm on those cold winter nights but first some history. Canadian Fire is one part a culinary mash up and one part why the heck not. So sit right back and I will tell you brief tale of how it came into being. Every year for the holidays I make candied almonds. This year I was hankering for something different to break up the holiday grind. I first thought well what if I swap out the almonds for pecans but that was not enough so I swapped out sugar for maple syrup. This was better but not enough and that is when I realized I needed something spicy. So Siracha was introduced into the mix and Canadian Fire was born. So now without further ado here is how to make this delectable treat

Step 1: The Tools and Ingredients

First the tools you will need
  • A medium sauce pan or pot
  • some sort of stirring/spreading device(I picked a spatula)
  • measuring cup
  • Non stick surface (I used a silicon backing sheet but parchment paper should work fine)
  • Stove(if you are taking pictures of it like I was you should probably do a better job cleaning it first or the internet might judge you. :D As it stands I did my best to crop out the stove top as to spare you all the elder horrors that live there. )
  • A hankering for adventure!(this is entirely optional but I find it helps when trying new things.)

  • 1 cup(.24 liters) Maple syrup
  • 1 table spoon(14.8 grams) cinnamon
  • 2 table spoons(29.6 grams) of Siracha
  • 1 cup of pecans (128 grams)
I would like to point out all of my conversions are being done by google and therefore might not be 100% accurate.

<p>When converting to grams there's no need to write 29,6 grams it can be rounded in next higher number-30 grams.</p>
<p>很 nice</p>
<p>Have you thought about putting these in brownies?</p>
<p>I had not. If you try it let me know how it tastes I am inrigued.</p>
This tastes as good as it looks!! Bring on the heat and the crunch!
This looks really good!
Thanks. If you make it I would love to hear how it turns out.
This looks deliciously terrifying and intriguing! :D
