Here is a quick and easy recipe that you can keep on hand as a snack, to serve to your guests, or give as a gift, too!

Louisiana pecans. We LOVE them! This recipe is a wonderful mix of our beloved pecans, two kinds of sweet sugars, a sass of seasoning blends, and then a kick of curry to top it off. It is just the right blend to excite all your taste buds.

These Sugar and Spice Pecans from River Road Recipes IV: Warm Welcomes, page 255, will make a lovely gift for a hostess, teacher, or neighbor. Be creative with packaging:  mason jars, cello bags with ribbons, pretty tins, or maybe a antique candy dish. Just use your imagination. You could also pair the gift with a pretty tea towel like in the picture below.
