Male: Hey fellow, working on your holiday gift giving list? You have a lot of names but what? Oh not too many presents. Well, two ideas that are cheap lead to mind—DVDs or spicenuts? No, you like the DVDs, no I’d say Spicenuts win. Now, you have to go make them.
Alton: Don’t worry it’s easy. Just put a large cast iron skillet over medium heat and add about a pound of fresh pecan paste. Just toast them around 45 minutes until they start to brown. Then add four tablespoons that’s a half a stick of unsalted butter. Now, when that melts, it’s time to bring on the spices. I have teaspoon each of cayenne pepper, salt, cumin, still talking half of teaspoon here; dried orange peel, it’s in the spice section don’t worry and cinnamon. There you have it. Then we’ve got to add a little bit of sugar to the party. We’re going to go with two tablespoons of a packed dark brown sugar and ¼ cup of packed light brown sugar. Last but not the least, two tablespoons of water and there will be some hazing, just stir that together until everything has dissolved and the mixture thickens just a bit then pour everything out onto parchment paper and separate the nuts as best you can. Cool it completely and then bag up for gift giving. You should be able to get about four bags per batch. Wow! You’re not broke, you’re just cheap.
