Ingredients for honey cinnamon roasted pecans | Tennessee Valley Pecan Company

Raw pecan halves (or a combination of pecan halves and pieces) aren't boring to those of us at Tennessee Valley Pecan Company. Instead, we take a look at these little nuggets and see a blank canvass full of potential. For those who prefer to create their own mix of ingredients, or are very selective about what covers their pecans, whipping up a batch at home can be both easy and tasty. 

These honey cinnamon roasted pecans offer the perfect balance of sweet and nutty. We love this roasted pecan recipe because all you need to do is combine a few ingredients, coat the pecans, and pop them in the oven for 10 minutes (or less). 

The spice of the cinnamon compliments the sweetness of the honey and all flavors make the nutty undertones ever so satisfying. 

Entertainer's Tip

Hint: Have unexpected guests coming to your house? Whip up this batch and your home will not only aromas delight, but you'll have a fancy-looking batch of pecans on hand to satisfy everyone. We don't have to tell anyone how easy these are...happy to keep it our little secret.

A Few Notes

coating pecans with cinnamon honey mixture | Tennessee Valley Pecan Company

  • Lining your sheet with parchment paper will make clean up easier. 
  • Have a little extra honey on hand in case the size of the halves you are using require a little extra coating. 
  • Though optional, it is best not to skip the pinch of salt. This helps bring out all the delicious flavors. 
  • Pay attention to your oven. The temperature can easily fluctuate depending upon how long it was pre-heating and if you open the door several times. Pecans have a high oil content, making them susceptible to burning - don't leave their side for too long! 

How will you enjoy these candied pecans? Let us know if you give them a try! Of course, if you prefer a taste of honey without roasting, we're happy to help. Take a peek at our honey-glazed pecans sold in sizes that range from 2-oz. snack packs to a 2 lb. bag!

Is the pecan pronunciation really a regional difference, as so many believe? It’s hard for us to believe that was true…in our corner of Alabama, our customers will swear by their unique versions of it.  In all fairness, it is pronounced every which way to Sunday, with PUH-KAHN and PEE-CAN taking the top two rankings. Of course, regional differences in many forms are fading with the frequency of our communities that are on the move.

A key component to the butter pecan cooking process is actually roasting the pecans in butter before incorporating into your recipe, which is most likely going to be homemade butter pecan ice cream. By the way, if you are looking for a good one, try this recipe from AllRecipes.com! Some recipes will call for you to roast the pecans with both butter and sugar first – sugar is going to be added at some point during the ice cream making process, but the foundation is based upon the butter roasting step. Don’t forget that pure vanilla extract adds a bit of sweetness to any dish as well.
