Amazing what a little butter and salt can do for a nut. These are addictive and a great way to rejuvenate stale or less-than-fresh nuts.


5tablespoons unsalted butter
2teaspoons salt
2pounds (about 5 cups) pecans


  1. Position rack in the center of the oven and preheat to 250F.
  2. Melt butter and add  salt, mixing together. Pour  over pecans, tossing to coat well. Pour pecans evenly onto a rimmed baking sheet.
  3. Bake about 60 minutes, stirring occasionally, until lightly toasted and barely colored.
