Sweet Spiced Pecans

1 C. sugar
1 1/2 T. ground cinnamon
1 t. ground cloves
1 t. salt
1 t. ground ginger
1/2 tsp. ground nutmeg
1 egg white
1 T. cold water
1 pound large pecan halves

Preheat oven to 250° F. Butter a large jelly-roll pan.

Mix together thoroughly all of the dry ingredients.

Beat egg whites with cold water until frothy but not stiff. Add spiced sugar mixture and blend well.

Add nuts; stir to coat completely.

Spread nuts onto pan; place in oven. Bake for 1 hour, stirring every 15 minutes. Remove from oven when dry and toasty. Cool and store in an airtight container. Make more than one batch if you want some for yourself.
