Clove and allspice take homemade roasted pecans over the top.
Do you say PEE-cahn or pee-CAWN? These nuts have a pretty floral scent and a hint of sweetness, but not too much. The best part is that they are roasted at home on the grill so they are head and shoulders above anything you can buy at the store.
- 1 pound raw pecan halves
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 2 teaspoons Morton coarse kosher salt
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- ½ teaspoon ground black pepper
- ¼ teaspoon ground cloves
- ¼ teaspoon ground allspice
- 2 tablespoons sugar
