Spiced Pecans

Spiced Pecans

My husband’s grandma made Spiced Pecans for us one year around Christmas time. My kids loved them. I asked for the recipe. Of course, she didn’t have a recipe, but told me what she did. This is what I came up with from what she told me. They are tasty and make a great homemade Christmas gift.

About Nelle

I am Nelle. I grew up in rural, small town, Ohio. When I was young, I learned a lot about homesteading from my parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles, 4-H, FFA, and others around me.
Now, I’m all grown up, have 6 children of my own, and plan to teach them everything I know.

Here on Mama’s Homestead, we talk and write about homesteading, homeschooling, and kidsteading (homesteading with kids). We teach our kids about survival, self-sufficiency, gardening (vegetable, herb, flower), orchard, beekeeping, home keeping, soap making, harvesting, cooking, food preservation, livestock, nature, crafts, homesteading tools and wares, and more…

Welcome to my homestead…come and learn with us!
