Our wireless continues to give us trouble… so hopefully I’ll get this post up while I have a connection. I love the smell of candied pecans and they certainly are delicious around the holidays… In the summer, I opt for a different twist: Curried Pecans. On Sunday I whipped up a batch. These curried pecans are the perfect addition to liven up you summer salads, or are a tasty snack to munch on their own.
1/2 c. butter, 1/2 c. light brown sugar, 2 1/2 Tbsp. curry powder, 1 1/2 Tbsp. ground ginger
Preheat oven to 350°F. Melt butter in saucepan over low heat. Add brown sugar and stir until dissolved. Stir in curry and ginger. Toss pecans into sauce and mix until well coasted. Spread pecans evenly on a baking tray and bake 15 minutes. Cool pecans and serve. Store in an airtight container.
Do you have any unusual pecan recipes?
