Baking Secrets: How To Toast Your Pecans

November is Pecan Season and there is nothing like a Georgia Pecan. And no matter how you pronounce it pecans are a Southern staple. I love to eat them on salads, as a crust for pork, chicken, in trail mix. However, honey, I LOVE to bake with pecans!

Shelled pecans are a great staple food. You can keep them in an airtight container for up to 9 months in your refrigerator, and two whole years in the freezer in a sealed bag. In fact, they can be thawed and refrozen repeatedly. Once thawed, pecans will stay good for two months.

I love them raw, and sugared but toasting pecans yeilds a huge payoff. The flavor intesified and raises the level of any cake, cookie or sweet. Get yourself some pecans and get toasting!
