I have never been much of a pecan person, I mean, they don’t grow in Oregon so we have to get them elsewhere. Because of this, I never really ate them much growing up. After making this recipe, I realized how good they are! And really how much BETTER pecans are when they are soaked and dehydrated until they are crispy. These pecans are crisp (duh) but they have a much more buttery flavor than their raw counterparts. They are now one of my favorites.
Try this recipe as crispy nuts are one of the foundational recipes of Nourishing Traditions. See this article on the Weston A Price Foundation (WAPF) web site for more information on why nuts should be soaked and dehydrated.
