I really enjoy these pecans, they are delicious and not too sweet. I like offering a mix of snacks and refreshments for the Christmas season, and this one fits both sweet and savory. They are a perfect nibble to offer your guests and tuck into holiday baskets for those you love.
I have made several batches of these delicious nuts, and I have learned along the way a couple of minor changes to the process. But I will say this, you must make these nuts, they have an exotic flavor that is superb!

Savory Salty and a little bit Sweet Pan Roasted Pecans
adapted from: Urban Pantry
2 C pecan halves
1/4 c oil
3 T sugar
3 T sugar
1 1/8 t salt
1 t cinnamon
1 t nutmeg
1 t turmeric
1 t paprika
1 t ginger
1/4 - 1/2 t ground chipotle peppers or cayenne pepper (use full measure for a bit of heat)
Combine the 3 T sugar and all spice ingredients listed above in a large bowl. Whisk to combine and mix well, set aside.
Heat the oil in large flat bottom saute pan on high heat when oil begins to ripple in the bottom of the pan, reduce heat to medium-high, add pecan halves begin stirring constantly until they are fragrant and beginning to turn a deep golden brown. Quickly rearrange pecans to the side of the pan and sprinkle the remaining sugar directly on the bottom of the pan.
Sprinkle the sugar over the exposed side of the pan. Just as quick, cover the sugar with the pecans and continue to stir and move the entire contents around the pan to avoid over browning. Continue stirring until the sugar has dissolved and caramelized.
Important: do not let sugar or pecans burn, remove the pan from heat for a moment while continuing to stir, if too hot.
When pecans are caramelized, immediately transfer the pecans to the sugar and spice mixture in the large bowl. Quickly stir, stir, stir to coat each pecan with the sugar-spice mixture. All of the spice mixture in the bowl will be used in coating the pecans.
Cool pecans completely, store in a covered container.
