Our new favorite snack is Caramelized Pecans. These are very easy to make and pretty good for you. I found the recipe here. My biggest improvement to the recipe is to double it! 1 cup of pecans just doesn’t last too long with veggie hubby in the house.
Usually I put the Pecans into water before I go to bed at night and then the next morning I can put them in the marinade and let them marinade while I’m getting ready in the morning. Then I put them in the dehydrator and they are ready the following morning. I have found for our dehydrator that it takes 24 hours for the best results. Also if you have temperature control on your dehydrator, I set ours between 115-125 degrees.
- Use old or dark colored towels to dry pecans. They will stain anything light colored. I learned this one the hard way.
- While the Pecans are marinating, stir them a couple of times during the hour. This will ensure that the pecans are evenly coated before you put them in the dehydrator.
All I can say is they are very yummy!
We found the best place to buy the pecans and honey is Costco for the best deal. I have pecans soaking in water as I write this and will be putting them in the dehydrator this evening. I forgot to put them in water last night!
