Spicy Cannabis Pecans

Whip up these sweet and savory canni-spiced nuts to snack on between visits to the relatives. Or double the recipe for an easy, edible holiday gift for cannabis-loving friends and family.

Ingredients:

  • 1 pound pecans (or nut of your choice)
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 pound pecan halves
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 tablespoons cannabis butter
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar 
  • 3 tablespoons water

Directions:

  1. Tear off large piece parchment paper or aluminum foil and spread out on counter.
  2. Mix spices in small bowl. Set aside.
  3. Toast nuts in skillet set over medium heat. Toss gently or stir with a wooden spoon frequently for about 5 minutes or until strong roasted aroma is released. Watch carefully and don’t leave the room — nuts can burn in a matter of seconds!
  4. Stir in the spices until just fragrant. Cut cannabis and regular butter into pats; add, stir to melt. Add sugar, then water, stirring after each. Stir until the sugar has completely melted and the nuts look glazed, about 3 minutes. Sprinkle with sea salt and remove from heat.
  5. Spread the nuts evenly onto the parchment or foil, taking the time to separate each nut so that they don’t stick together. Allow to cool completely.
  6. Fill a half-pint Mason jar with pecans and adorn with a red or green ribbon. And most importantly — be absolutely certain you label these goodies as cannabis-friendly!
