Made with just three ingredients, they are also a great recipe to do at the Holidays with the kids or grandkids. A simple method of cooking that shows children of all ages how to love on others with food. I loved telling my girls about the Pecan while they were growing up. One of the few indigenous nut trees to the United States, the pecan was loved by the Indians and shared with Colonist all those years ago. Food and history, they often go hand in hand.

Tips and Tricks

Can I use the same method with other nuts?

Yes! This method applies to any manner of nuts your heart desires! We prefer the Pecan to all others but by all means use what you have on hand! The Roasted saltiness of this will have you hooked! No matter the nut!

What is the best way to prepare them for easy clean up?

I really like to line my pan with aluminum foil before roasting, this helps with clean up. Just note that if you do this, you will still need cooking spray to help keep them from sticking.

What can I substitute for Butter?

Margarine or any plant based butter substitute will work. You can also use coconut or another type of oil. Just be careful if you sub oil for butter, it has a different smoke point so you will want to keep a close eye on your pecans so they will not burn.

Simple and Delicious

Sometimes, we just need a simple thing. We love to food gift during the Holidays and this is an easy way to do it.
