Recipes Using Pecan Nuts

Description
Pecan nuts have a rich, buttery flavor. Pecans are a good source of protein and unsaturated fats. They are rich in omega-6 fatty acids, although pecans contain about half as much omega-6 as walnuts. A diet rich in nuts can lower the risk of gallstones in women. The antioxidants and plant sterols found in pecans can reduce high cholesterol by reducing the “bad” LDL cholesterol levels.

Sweetly Spiced Crispy Pecans- From Savoringtoday.com
4 cups raw pecans
2 teaspoons sea salt
4 tablespoons coconut sugar
1-2 teaspoons cinnamon
Filtered water to cover pecans

Soak pecans in a large bowl with filtered water and salt for 8-12 hours. Pour off water and allow to drain well, 5-10 minutes. Spread out half the pecans in a large bowl; sprinkle 2 tablespoons of sugar and up to 1 teaspoon of cinnamon over pecans. Mix well. The moisture from the soaked pecans should help to create a light coating of sugar and cinnamon over the pecans.

Repeat with the remaining pecans. Dry at 150° for 16-18 hours, or until pecans are crisp. Note: To test the nuts, allow a couple to cool for a few minutes first.
