How to Roast Your Own Nuts
Roasting (or toasting, whichever is your preference) your own nuts is super easy. I used pecans here, because I had two bags that were in the freezer of my grandparent's house from who-knows-when...Toasting them brings out the true flavor of the nuts.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Put the nuts onto a jelly roll pan (or, if all your pans are dirty, you can use round cake pans, like I did!), and roast for about 10 minutes, or until you can smell their aroma. This is the important part: You don't want them to burn, so when you begin to smell them, that usually means they're ready. If you want, you can stir them and roast for a few more minutes, depending on how dark you want them, but be careful that they don't burn.
