½ cup sugar
4 tbsp water
¼ tsp salt

Cook for some time till all liquid evaporates and crystal starts to form on the back of spoon.
Take off fire and keep aside for few minutes. The syrup will solidify to hard crystals.
Keep the pan back on medium fire and stir.

The sugar will start to caramelize. When the mixture starts to bubble, quickly pour onto a greased parchment or oiled marble top.
Let the pecans cool completely before storing in an airtight container.
