We also appreciate it when you take the time to give us your feedback and to suggest new products that you would like us to make. Thanks to your requests we have some wonderful new products and website improvements we will be launching in 2017. Keep an eye out here and in our e-blasts for more information on these exciting things.

As a chainmaille artist, I am always looking for ways to squeeze in just a little more time for creating. One of my favorite tools to help create more time is my crockpot! I can throw everything in it and poof! more time for Jumprings and less time in the kitchen! Here is one of my favorite slow cooker recipes that not only is great treat but put some in a cute jar and you have a great little Christmas gift. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

Hint: It is sometimes very easy to get lost in chainmaille and forget to take a break to rest your eyes and hands. This recipe needs to be stirred about every 30 minutes. The time it takes to get up and go stir the pot is just right for a quick break for your eyes, hands and back! You can make great munchies, a beautiful piece of chainmaille and practice good habits all in one!

Merry Christmas and happy holidays from the entire team here at Weave Got Maille! We wish you and yours a very merry holiday season.

Merry Christmas

Slow Cooker Cinnamon Pecans

Prep Time: 10 minute

Cook Time: 3 ½ hours


4 cups Pecan Halves

1 cup Sugar

1 cup Brown Sugar

3 Tbsp. Cinnamon

1/4 tsp Salt

3 Egg White

2 ½ tsp. Vanilla

3 Tbsp. water

  • 1.In a large bowl, whisk together the egg whites and vanilla until foamy. In another bowl, combine sugars, cinnamon, and salt and stir until all ingredients are mixed well.
  • 2.Add pecans to the egg mixture and toss to coat. Next, add cinnamon sugar mixture to the bowl of pecans and toss to coat. Transfer coated nuts to a greased slow cooker.
  • 3.Cook nuts on low for 3 ½ hours, stirring about every 30 minutes. After they are done cooking, add water and stir. Transfer to a lightly greased baking sheet and allow to cool completely. It could take up to an hour or two for all of the sugar to crystalize (it’s ok to sneak a few now!) Store in airtight container.
