Crispy Pecans

Yield: 4 cups

Ingredients:

4 cups pecan halves
1 teaspoon sea salt or Herbamare
filtered water

Directions:

The buttery flavor of pecans is enhanced by soaking and slow-oven drying. Soak pecans in salt and filtered water for at least 7 hours or overnight. Drain in a colander. Spread pecans on two stainless steel baking pans and place in a warm oven (no more than 150 degrees) for 12 to 24 hours, stirring occasionally, until completely dry and crisp. Store in an airtight container. Great for school lunches.
