Spicing pecans are select chopped & roasted pecans that are flavored as; Herb, Hot, Cinnamon, & Coffee, to use as cooking ingredients in recipes.

The idea for spicing pecans came to me after preparing a chicken salad with roasted chopped pecans. When eating it noticed what a nice savory flavor the pecans added and thought! What would roasted chopped pecans taste like if already seasoned, especially with so many recipes calling for plain chopped pecans? And the journey began. I studied how current flavors are added to pecans, spoke to local food safety professionals, a retired food scientist, and just persisted in trials and errors ... until I found a recipe that worked; Herb. The search for additional flavors had their own logistics, but we eventually had four different varieties; Herb, Hot & Spicy, Cinnamon, and Coffee. Spicing Pecans are truly not only truly southern, but genuinely unique as well. I hope to continue growing promotion of Spicing Pecans through specialty food grocers, internet sales, and wholesale distribution channels. Our tag line best describes the experience of using Spicing Pecans ... Be Creative!
