These come to us from our friend Lori, via Facebook… Another friend had posted about having a plethora of fresh pecans and she pulled these out of her recipe files to share.

Savory Pecans

For 4 cups of pecans:

Melt 3T butter, stir in nuts, add

  • 2 tsp salt,
  • 3T worcestershire,
  • 1/4tsp cinnamon and
  • tabasco to taste.

Spread nuts on baking sheet and bake at 350° for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.

This could probably be improved on with some chili and garlic powder or other dried spices of your choice.

Also, they do tend to burn if you don’t watch them pretty closely.

Sweet Pecans

For 3 Cups of pecans:

Beat together

  • 1 egg white and
  • 1 Tbsp water

and soak the nuts in it for 30 minutes or until the liquid is absorbed.
Sprinkle over nuts and mix well:

  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon,
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg,
  • 2 Tbsp sugar

Melt some butter on a baking pan and spread the coated nuts on it.

Bake at 250° for 30-45 minutes, stirring about every 15 minutes.

Again, embellish ad lib.
