Simple Roasted Pecans

Different from toasted pecans, this method adds other flavors and can be served with cocktails

  • 1 to 2 tablespoons of butter, melted
  • 2 teaspoons of finely ground sea salt or table salt
  • 1 teaspoon of Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 cups of pecans (preferably halves)

Preheat oven to 310 degrees.*

In a bowl, combine the butter, salt, and Worcestershire sauce. Add pecans and toss to coat well. Spread in a single layer on a baking sheet. Bake for 10 minutes; stir. Bake 10-15 minutes longer or until golden brown. Do not allow them to burn, as the nuts will acquire a bitter taste.

Yield: 2 cups

*Some recipes recommend an oven temperature of 350 degrees and a shorter baking time. The slower, lower-temperature method produces a “riper” flavor.
