How To Toast Pecans

toastedpecans1 How To Toast Pecans

As summer is coming to a close, holiday baking is approaching. Today I was making salted caramel pecan bars when I realized I wanted to toast my pecans first. What I like about toasting nuts is how aromatic they are as well as the added crunchiness when they are baked. Although you could easily toast pecans/nuts by themselves, when coated with a little bit of salted butter then baked, the pecans go from ordinary to extraordinary. In fact my kids kept on gobbling them up. So the next time you have a recipe which calls for pecans, consider toasting them first. Enjoy!

    Yumm! Those are some good looking nuts! (No pun intended!) I love this tutorial because I know a lot of people (*cough* *cough* my step father) who don’t know how to do many things in the kitchen, especially toast nuts. So, next time I ask him to toast some pecans, I’ll give him the link to this post because he needs instructions to do everything.

    When I want to “toast” pecans, I usually lift my glass to them and say something like:

    “There are good ships, and there are wood ships,
    The ships that sail the sea.
    But the best ships, are friendships,
    And may they always be.”

    you have a great readers’ base already!
