Roasted Pecans

One of the benefits of eating low carb is that I can eat nuts, other than peanuts, with a clear conscience. The price of nuts seems to have gone through the roof though, and the 100g (3.5 0z) packs of roasted pecans I used to buy from Waitrose for, I think £1,99 went up to £3 odd. I see they have now gone down to £2.85.

Recently, while shopping in the wonderful Costco, I noticed a 2lb (907g) bag of unroasted pecans for £9.99. This works out at £1.10 per 100g so I thought I would have a go at roasting my own.

All I did was spread them on a baking sheet and sprinkled them with salt before putting them into an oven about 220 C 428F gas 7 for 5 minutes. Easy, and quite acceptable.

Having searched the internet I think the price from Costco was pretty fantastic. The 1k bags I found on Amazon and elsewhere were well over double the price.
