Spiced Party Pecans

“I first enjoyed these many years ago at someone’s home in Boston, and the hostess was kind enough to tell me how she made them. They are a big hit at cocktail hour.”

–Bea Tollman, Celebrity Chef & Founder of Red Carnation Hotels


1 egg white

1 lb (500 g) pecans

1/2 cup (100 g) granulated sugar

1 tsp (5 g) salt

2 tsp (10 g) ground cinnamon

3/4 tsp (4 g) ground ginger
