Below are three photos to give you an idea of how much product you will receive in each size package. We filled up each size bag with marbles and placed them next to a quarter to provide a clear representation. There are two different photos, one for standard spices/seasonings and one for herbs. Since many herbs are so leafy the same weight will fill up a much larger bag. This is why some of the herb prices seem a lot higher than the spice prices, but you are actually receiving more product.
The third image is of our 1 cup Bottle with Sifter next to a popular national brand found in most grocery stores. You can see that our bottle holds close to 2.5 times more product than the national brand bottle. Plus, ours often costs less! Please be aware some other online retailers only offer 1/2 cup(4 fluid ounces) bottles. We choose to offer double the size 1 cup (8 fluid ounces) bottles to give you the biggest bang for your buck!
We hope you can see from these images that regardless of which size you order, you are getting a lot of product and a very good value compared to the supermarket.

- 1 cup
- 1 cup
light brown sugar
- 1 cup
- 2 cups
- 1/4 cup
- 1 teaspoon
an evenly heating pan, like a cast iron skillet
wooden spoon, best for candy making because it does not absorb heat
candy thermometer, optional but helps!
Choose a cool, dry day to make your candy. A warm, humid day can cause the candy to not set up correctly, or turn out grainy. Know you will spend at least 20-30 minutes in front of the stovetop, you can not leave its side!
Ready your stations. First measure out all of your ingredients, this helps have everything ready when you need it. A few seconds wasted while you search for a roll of wax paper can make your candy burn! Roll out two to three sheets of wax paper, invert two cookie sheets and place the wax paper over them. Set them aside.
Once you have everything ready, place your cast iron skillet on the oven over medium-high heat. Add the sugars and milk. Cook over the high heat until the grains disappear, stirring constantly.
Add the pecans when small bubbles appear around the edges. When the mixture starts to boil, set your timer for 10 minutes. Stir constantly, and take the temp occasionally. When the 8-10 minutes is almost up, the pecans will start to clump together in the pan, and the liquid will have started to thicken. Use your wooden spoon to slice through the middle of the pan, if it leaves a trail that takes a few seconds to fill back in, it’s ready. This is the soft ball stage, about 236-degrees.
Remove the pan from the heat and immediately add the butter. Stir to combine and add the vanilla extract.
Use a metal spoon to portion the candy into clumps on the wax paper. The liquid will spread slightly and the pecans will stay in the middle.
While they cool, wash your pan, otherwise you will need a jack hammer to clean it!
The candy will be completely cooled in about 10 minutes. Store in an air-tight container for up to 2 weeks.
