Sugared Pecans and Almonds


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!
