My ol' lady requested this for a party next weekend. I have never done this before and would not suggest using a especially nice bottle of bourbon. Makers Mark, which I typically do not buy because it is over priced, was on sale so I used a bottle of it. My plan was to use Buffalo Trace.

I took two cups of pecans, soaked them for about 30 minutes. I then drained them and mixed them with Cayenne, Sea Salt, and Black Pepper. After that, I roasted them for 20 mintes at 300 degrees. Roasting them helps bring out the oils of the nuts. I then put them in a mason jar and filled with bourbon. -will report back in 1 week, but should be interesting.

Oh, sorry -should have clarified. The 30 minute soak was in water. In addition to roasting, this helps bring the oils out of the bourbon. I believe the squaw intends to make Pecan Bourbon Old Fashions with this concoction. I'm not much of a mixed drink guy, but I can enjoy a Old Fashion. I'll have to dig my tweed blazer out, I suppose.

That is what I figured but thought I'd ask to be certain. Sounds like a great Thanksgiving Day snack. If they turn out I might give it a try.

Do you use a cookie sheet or a pizza stone to roast your nuts? \:D

I'm not so sure that the pecans will be so edible, at least as individual snacks. I am thinking that, devoid of their oils, they may fall apart if you take them out of the liquid. They may work fine floating in your drink as a snack to polish off your last sip with, though.

I was actually thinking about candying them after soaking them...kinda like an adult version of the popular spiced pecans lots of folks make for the holidays

Like this:

...Idunno maybe that wouldn't work either. Just a thought.
