Very subtle flavors that blend well together. No strong taste of any of the spices. I've had homemade and store-bought nuts such as these and they can be overpowering. I made a half batch to try and they're really good. UPDATE: I realized later that I used cumin instead of curry (and they're called 'curried'....hello). Anyway they were still very good! Read More

These are amazing. Great with the recipe as written but I add a teaspoon of ground mustard. It adds an interesting depth of flavor. Great for snacking I keep them in the fridge through the holidays. Read More

Completely addictive! They are great for finger food or on a salad. I have played around with different curries... a like Penzeys curry now or if I m looking for something spicy i will use 1/2 curry now and 1/2 hot curry. I stick with 1 tsp total. I LOVE curry and have a tendency to add too much:) Read More

12.26.15 These nuts are much more savory than sweet with the "candied" feature being subtle...the perfect complement to a Holiday cocktail or beer! The amount of curry was spot on for us. You could taste it but it didn't overwhelm as curry can do. Thoroughly enjoyed these easy-to-make pecans. Thanks for sharing your recipe. Read More
