When hosting friends and family this holiday season, offer Savory Spiced Pecans as a delicious appetizer. If, by chance, there are any left, toss them on a salad or ice cream.

  • 1 pound YCCS pecan halves
  • 3 Tbsp. melted butter
  • 1/3 cup sugar, white
  • 1 Tbsp. karo syrup
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. pepper
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp. allspice
  • 1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp. coriander

Mix together the melted butter, sugar, karo syrup, and vanilla. Boil pecans in water for one minute. Drain and put in a bowl. Stir in the butter mixture and place pecans on a non-stick cookie sheet overnight at room temperature. The following morning, bake at 300 degrees F for 40 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes. When done, put pecans into a bowl. Sprinkle spice mixture over pecans and stir. Lay on cookie sheet again to cool completely. Enjoy!
