Old-Fashioned Roasted Pecans

Old-Fashioned Roasted Pecans

Patricia K

"My ex-mother-in-law lives in the South and has lots of pecan trees. She sends me bags of shelled pecans every year for Christmas. I found out how they make the roasted pecans at the fair. Even though they use big roasters, these turn out just as great."
