11/18/2018 – Roasted these to use in the high fiber trail mix for the kids 2018 Thanksgiving visit.
Honey Roasted Pecans – This easy recipe with just those two ingredients was inspired by Kelly@TrialandEater. She advised the rough proportions to be 1 tablespoon honey for each 1 cup pecan pieces.
What we did was as follows.
- Preheated oven, set for convection, to 350°F. Lined a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- In a small bowl mixed in warmed dark Texas honey with the whole halves and pieces until evenly coated.
- Convection baked for about 15 minutes.
- Let cool
To see if we like this we did 1C of pecans and measured about 1T of the dark thick honey. It was hard to get it evenly mixed in so zapped it about 15 seconds to warm up and then the honey could be distributed. Baked it 10 minutes and they were not sticky and seemed to be roasted. They were good so we fixed the large 4C batch for the trail mix.
We did not measure the honey for the 4C batch and added more than the first batch. Probably 2T/cup and after 10 minutes in the oven they were still sticky. Put them back in for 5 more minutes and they were still sticky but not as much when they cooled. Added they to the trail mix and they broke up well and lost the sticky. Nice addition to the trail mix.
