Your recipes sounds really gret. Never thought of salt and pepper as your describe. I have a bag in the frig now and I will try this one.

Keep on track

So, I tossed about 1 1/2 C. pecan halves in about 1 TBS. (maybe a little less) of rice bran oil, several shakes of the coarse ground pepper shaker, and a bit of coarse ground kosher salt. Tossed them into an iron skillet, kept them moving, until they turned a pretty golden brown color and I could smell their lovely aroma. I think, however, that I had the burner up too high. Should've gone with a lower temp for a longer time. Plus, most of the seasonings stuck to the pan.

Next time I'll try putting them in a single layer on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, drizzle with oil, salt, & pepper (lots of pepper, please!) and put them in a 350 degree oven for a while - just like I do kale chips, only longer bake time. OR, the iron skillet at a lower temp.

Thanks all, for your suggestions. I just love pecans!!

I tend to use pecans more in cooking than as a snack.

Rough chop nuts, place on PAM sprayed skillet. Sprinkle a little Sea Salt on them and over medium heat stir until you smell their aroma. Place nuts on cooling plate. Give'em a try!

Does anyone have a good recipe for pecans that does not include sugar? I love to snack on pecans, and put them in salads and other recipes, but every recipe I've found has a ton of sugar, which I'm trying very hard to avoid.

Thanks for your help!

Susan
