If I had suggested, "Let's make a dish with pecans, brown sugar, paprika, chili powder, cumin and VINEGAR." Then I promised that it would come out superb. Would you have believed me? Well let me tell you these were fabulous.
These nuts are awesome. I forgot to add the salt and they were still really good. They were tangy and spicy but not too spicy (which suprised me.) A definite make-again recipe.
Made these a couple of times now, and I must say that they are DELICIOUS! I used a hugarian paprika that we get from a local goulash restaurant, and baked the pecans at 350' for five minutes instead of 375' (this was because the other recipe I was making called for a 350' oven) Cooking them slightly lower seems to have yeilded a nice pecan-caramalized, spicy, sweet, and just a little tender even after cooling. Last night I made these in a craving, but discovered part way through that I had only half of the cider vinegar needed. It was suggested that I use some of the cheap sake we had around the house, and so I did. Turned out good, but definitely is better with full cider. Thanks for posting! ~~Luna
I can't believe I forgot to rate these. They are great! and addictive. I make these for me instead of popcorn on movie night. My son thought they were good and my husband thought they were a bit strong but I love them! I add the leftovers (on the few times there were leftovers) to salads.
These were very good. I didn't have any cider vinegar and used balsamic instead.
The sweet flavor was good, but not spicy enough for us. Also the coating was crispy but the nut was soft, a texture I didn't care for.
Delicious! I'll try this method to make some sweet and cinnomon-y clove-y nutmeg-y nuts later in the week. Thanks for giving me a new idea.
These were sooooo good, and extremely habit-forming lol! DH bought a large jar of pecans and I want to "jazz" them up, I am so happy to have found this recipe, and I look forward to making them again for the holidays...Great recipe LizP! thanks for sharing...Kitten:)
Just the recipe I've been looking for. Great in salads - great for nibbling (ADDICTIVE!!!) Easy to prepare. Wonderful!!!
all I can say is YUMMY!!! Thank you so much for posting!!
