up front, i need to admit that these seasoned pecans are addictive. they can be served with ice cream, fruit, with a cheese tray, or just for snacking. this recipe comes from scratch herbs and spices. these are excellent and one of my favorite recipes of all time.
in a large non-stick skillet, melt 4 tablespoons unsalted butter over medium heat. add 3 cups of pecan halves, and don’t walk away. stir until they toast up about four minutes maximum.
i removed them from the heat, and mixed in a small bowl the following ingredients: 1/4 cup sugar, 2 teaspoons ground ginger, and sea salt to taste. return the nuts to the heat, and sprinkle the sugar mixture over the nuts, and continue to stir. do not walk away. stir for about one minute more. do not allow the sugar to melt, but just adhere to the nuts.
remove from the heat and place on a baking sheet. spread out immediately, or the nuts will clump together. they must cool before eating or storing in a glass jar.
