    Greetings. I am enjoying experimenting with Swerve! I do have 2 questions regarding this recipe for candied pecans:
    1) There is an asterisk (*) after the 3 cups of pecans in the ingredients listing, but I do not see any asterisked footnote or reference elsewhere on the page. To what does this asterisk refer?
    2) Is there supposed to be further instruction after item # 5, where the mixture is poured onto a prepared pan? Is the pan supposed to be baked? If so, at what temperature, and how long? If not, how long does one leave the mixture on the pan, presumably to “dry”?
