Recipe by Brenda.
READY IN: 1hr 30mins
YIELD: 1 pound


  • 1
    lb pecans, whole
  • 1
    egg white
  • 1
    tablespoon water
  • 2
    tablespoons sugar
  • 2
    teaspoons orange rind, finely grated
  • 1
    teaspoon seasoning salt (such as Lawry's)
  • 1
    teaspoon mild curry powder (sometimes I use 1/2 hot- 1/2 mild for a little more kick)


  • Preheat oven to 250°F.
  • In a medium bowl, mix egg white with water until a bit frothy.
  • Stir in the pecans and mix until pecans are well coated with egg white mixture.
  • Combine sugar, orange rind, seasoned salt and curry powder in a Ziploc bag.
  • Remove pecans from egg white bowl,and add to the bag. Discard any remaining egg white mixture.
  • Seal up the bag and shake vigorously to coat pecans with spices.
  • Spread nuts onto two baking sheets and place in oven. I line mine with parchment paper.
  • Bake pecans for 20 minutes, then remove from oven and stir and spread out on pan again.
  • Turn off oven, place pecans back in the oven, and crack oven door. Let them remain there for 45 minutes to 1 hour, or until they are crisp.
  • Enjoy!
