Why Making Your Own Is a Must!

Making your own candied pecans at home offers several compelling reasons to opt for DIY over store-bought alternatives:

1. Control Over Quality Ingredients: When you make your own Maple Spice Roasted Pecans, you get to handpick each ingredient, ensuring they meet your standards for quality. Opt for fresh, organic pecans and pure maple syrup, free from any additives. This control over your ingredients allows you to create a snack that’s not only delicious but also free from unwanted preservatives and artificial flavours.

2. Personalized Flavour Adventure: Your kitchen becomes the stage for culinary experimentation. Adjust the spices to suit your taste buds – more cinnamon, a dash of extra nutmeg, or even a pinch of cayenne for those who enjoy a spicy kick. By making your own, you have the creative freedom to tailor the flavours precisely to your liking.

3. No Hidden Nasties: When you craft your Maple Spice Roasted Pecans, you can bid farewell to hidden sugars and unhealthy fats that often lurk in store-bought versions. By controlling the ingredients, you ensure that your snack is as wholesome as it is delicious. Plus, you can monitor the salt content, which is crucial for those watching their sodium intake.

"they taste so much better than store bought!"

4. Freshness Unleashed: Nothing beats the aroma of freshly roasted pecans filling your kitchen. By making your own, you can enjoy your Maple Spice Roasted Pecans at their peak of freshness, ensuring each bite is as delightful as the first. The smell in your home will delight guests as they enter this holiday season!

5. An Artful and Heartfelt Gift: Homemade Maple Spice Roasted Pecans also make fantastic gifts. Share your culinary love with friends and family by packaging these treats in beautiful jars or gift bags. It’s a heartfelt gesture that will be appreciated and remembered.

6. Sensory Delight and Satisfaction: The process of creating your own Maple Spice Roasted Pecans is a sensory journey. The sound of pecans being stirred, the aroma of maple and spices wafting through the air, and the satisfaction of seeing your creation come to life are all part of the experience.

Step 1: Spice up your pecans & pre-heat oven

a) Start by preheating your oven to 325°F (160°C) and lining a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.

b) In a large mixing bowl, add the pecan halves. These beauties are about to transform into a delicious snack.

c) In a separate bowl, combine the pure maple syrup, pumpkin spice, and flaky sea salt. This is your magical elixir! If you like things a little spicy, add a touch of cayenne pepper.

d) Pour this maple spice potion over the pecans and stir them well to make sure every pecan is coated with the flavourful blend.

Step 2: Roast the tasty pecans

a) Spread your maple spice-coated pecans onto the prepared baking sheet in a single layer. This ensures even roasting.

b) Pop them into the preheated oven and let them roast for about 7-10 minutes. Stir to flip after 7-10 minutes to ensure that gorgeous maple spice flavour spreads evenly.

c) Roast for an additional 5-7 minutes until golden and slightly crispy lookingh.

d) When your pecans are perfectly roasted – fragrant and slightly golden (darker, but not burnt – take them out of the oven and let them cool on the baking sheet. They’ll continue to harden as they cool.

Step 3: The Final Act

Once your Maple Spice Roasted Pecans have cooled and hardened, transfer them to an airtight container. But be warned – these little wonders might not last long. The temptation to snack on them will be too strong!

How long will they stay fresh?

Properly stored, maple spice roasted pecans can last for several weeks, maintaining their flavour and freshness.

storage tips for maple spice roasted pecans:

  1. Airtight Container: Transfer the cooled and hardened pecans to an airtight container. This helps to protect them from exposure to air, which can cause them to become stale. At room temperature, roasted pecans can stay fresh for about 2 weeks.
  2. Cool Completely: Make sure the pecans are completely cooled before storing them. Warm pecans in an airtight container can create condensation, leading to a loss of crunchiness.

  3. Avoid Moisture: Keep the container in a cool, dry place. Moisture can make the pecans lose their crispiness and become chewy.

  4. Refrigeration or Freezing (Optional): While pecans can be stored at room temperature, you can extend their shelf life by refrigerating or freezing them. Place the airtight container in the refrigerator for up to three months or in the freezer for longer storage. Just be sure to bring them back to room temperature before serving. For longer-term storage, consider freezing roasted pecans. In the freezer, they can maintain their quality for up to 6 months. Divide them into smaller portions and use airtight containers or freezer bags to minimize exposure to air and prevent freezer burn.

  5. Check for Signs of Spoilage: Periodically check the pecans for any signs of spoilage, such as an off smell or unusual texture. If they develop an off flavor or odor, it’s time to discard them.

Remember that the shelf life may vary based on factors such as the storage conditions and the initial quality of the pecans. Enjoy your maple spice roasted pecans within a reasonable timeframe to savour their optimal taste and texture! If they develop an off odor, flavor, or appearance, it’s a sign that they may have gone stale or rancid, and it’s time to discard them.
