SIDE Wilted Garlicky Greens with Candied Pecans




Yield 8-10 servings

One of my favorites to make!  The wilted garlicky greens really work nicely with the crunchy pecans to balance both flavors and textures.  You will make this once then return to it again and again.

2 cups pecans

⅓ cup brown sugar

2 Tbsp oil

2 Tbsp bourbon (or more oil if omitting bourbon)

1 tsp salt

8 cloves garlic, sliced thinly

1 pinch red pepper flakes
