curried pecans

If you have any of these left after a party, I’m sure they would make a great addition to a salad with some greens, apple and blue cheese. The likely hood of actually having any left? Not very good. These addicting morsels are perfectly sweet and salty, with the mysterious flavor of curry that will keep people guessing.

I’m not sure where the original recipe came from, but my Mom has been making them for years and often gives packages away as gifts. They are always a hit and will be making the party round with me this year!

Curried Pecans

  • 1 lb. pecans
  • 1 egg white
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 Tbsp salt
  • 2 Tbsp curry powder

Pre-heat oven to 250°. Spray pan with cooking spray and roast pecans for about 10 minutes. Meanwhile, beat egg white until foamy and mix dry ingredients together. Toss pecans with egg whites and when evenly coated, toss with dry ingredients until all pecans are coated with curry and sugar mixture.

Bake for about 45 minutes, stirring every 15 minutes. Let cool before serving.

    Thanks for the recipe Emily! After trying them Saturday at the party, I decided to make them Sunday….needless to say they were gone by Tuesday! 🙂 Maybe Alfie was eating them?!

    I second Anna, those things were pretty incredible, and I was pretty sure after reading your description above there was going to be a picture of me double fisting and shoving my fat face with those pecans. Kick ass work all around on the party… Anna, you too if you are reading this.

  6. I LOVE these candied nuts. I really am addicted to them; I could finish off 1 lb of them in a seating! The curry spice sounds awesome! I’ll bet it’ll be great with cashews, too!

  7. ahhh, i love it! i was also at the party and have to agree that these were a hit. (i think i was the one eating anna’s not alfie).
