    1. Place unbaked pie crust into 9-inch deep dish pie plate.
    2. Stir together corn syrup (or maple syrup), brown sugar, salt, cloves, allspice, cinnamon. Stir together well in a large bowl.
    3. In a separate bowl, whisk eggs, melted butter, and eggs.
    4. Pour egg mixture into syrup/sugar mixture and combine well.
    5. Stir in pecans. I like to pulse about half of the pecans in a food processor
    6. Pour entire mixture into unbaked pie crust.
    7. Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees. Lower temperture to 350 degrees, and put pie, covered with foil, in the center of the oven. Bake for about 30 minutes.
    8. Remove the foil and bake for about another 30 minutes or until the outer edges are set and the middle is a bit jiggly. The custard will set as it cools on a baking rack.
    9. OPTIONAL: lightly sprinkle sea salt or kosher salt for added flavor.
