Perfect Pecan Roasting

These pecans are game changing. I know, it’s just a roasted nut – but these are RIDICULOUS! Simple, just water, salt, and pecans, but we have a very hard time keeping them stocked in our house. These were a big win with some of my nut-opposed kids to help convert them to loving nuts. And we package them up nicely and give them out at Christmas as teacher gifts. Yeah, they are *that* good. Recipe is not mine, but shared with permission from a dear friend, Lorie Martin.

  3. Stir pecans in salted water for 4 minutes. Drain.

Recipe Notes

AIRFRYER MODIFICATION - Airfry at 275 for 45 minutes, stirring every 15 minutes. Crispier and even better than even in half the time!

  1. Do you leave out the water for air frying? Thanks

    • No matter if cooking in the oven or airfryer, still do the salt water bath first – it makes all the difference!

    This recipe is awesome! Since the first time I made it, a couple of months ago, I have not stopped! Everyone loves it, including my younger daughter, who did not like pecans at all. Thank you, Autumn!

    • Hooray! I’m thrilled to hear that and love a mom win! My pickiest eater doesn’t like pecans either and will eat these.
