I made my own sugared pecans and almonds today, found a good recipe. I made some sugared pecans using a different recipe last week and didn’t like the way they turned out. The key is egg whites! The pecans have cinnamon, nutmeg and vanilla extract in them. I decided to try something different with the almonds and used a bit of cinnamon and nutmeg but instead of the vanilla extract, I used orange and almond extracts. They turned out good!
Thanks to my father- in- law for shelling these beautiful pecans. They are HUGE!
