Sweet Crispy Pecans and Some Mighty Nest Products

by Deliciously Organic on August 17, 2011

Can you believe it’s already time to get ready for school? Fresh boxes of crayons, sharpened pencils, and thick stacks of notebook paper wait, tucked away in my kids’ backpacks. First-day outfits lie waiting for Monday morning. The next thing to think about is lunch boxes and water bottles. The containers where we store our food are almost as important as the food itself. Many containers and bottles on the market today carry chemicals, non-stick coatings, or additives that can leach into food.

Last year I bought stainless steel water bottles for my kids and they loved them. Stainless steel is one of my favorites because nothing leaches into the water (like aluminum or plastic can) and it doesn’t contain a non-stick coating with dangerous chemicals like PFOA (PFOA -a chemical used to make Teflon, has been linked to cancer, birth defects and higher rates of thyroid disease). They’re also dishwasher safe.

A few months ago I found these super cute reusable, glass water bottles that are surrounded by a web of silicon (100% non-toxic). They’re dishwasher safe and come in several colors.

Recently, Mighty Nest asked me if I’d feature some of their products. As soon as I took a look at their site I said, “Yes!” Their site has dozens of items I’ve bought for years, but they’re all available in one place. Everything from stainless steel lunch containers, to glass water bottles, to reusable bags – they’ve got everything you need to get your child ready for the lunch room. They also carry stainless steel bakeware (one of my personal favorites). The bakeware won’t react with food or rust, doesn’t have any type of coating that can wear off, and each piece comes with a 25-year warranty.

 

Mighty Nest has kindly offered to give away some items to get you or your kids ready for a toxin-free lunch. They are giving away a stainless steel insulated thermos (great for soups or homemade hot cocoa), a glass/silicone water bottle, and a stainless steel lunchbot container. To enter, leave a comment below. Giveaway ends Sunday, August 21st at 11:59pm. Contest open to US states only. One name will be selected using random.org and be contacted. The winner has 3 days to respond before being disqualified and a new winner chosen. Good luck!

 

All we need now is a healthy, organic treat to pack in that back-to-school lunch bag.  How about some sweet crispy pecans? This recipe can be adapted using any nut you choose and makes a sweet and crunchy addition to any lunch (it also makes for a great snack). I prefer to soak nuts overnight to help release the phytic acid (we get tummy aches in our family from unsoaked nuts). I’m not a fan of roasting nuts because the high heat can destroy the good oils. Instead, I dehydrate nuts at a low temperature. It’s easy – you soak the nuts in salt water overnight, drain, and then dehydrate the next night in the oven or in a dehydrator. Make sure to pack them in a safe container, like glass or stainless steel.

Sweet Crispy Pecans

Serving Size: Makes 2 cups

Sweet Crispy Pecans

Ingredients

    For the nuts:

  • 2 cups raw pecans

  • 1 1/2 teaspoons sea salt

  • 4 tablespoons maple syrup

Instructions

Place pecans and salt in a medium bowl. Cover with water and stir to dissolve salt. Sit on the counter overnight at room temperature. The next day preheat the oven to 170ºF, drain the nuts, pour into a bowl and toss with maple syrup. Spread pecans on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake the nuts overnight, about 8-10 hours, or until crispy.

You know, growing up I never liked Pecans (well, I didn’t like a lot of food growing up) but I’ve noticed that as I get older, my tastes really *do* change. It’s been years since I’ve eaten a pecan, maybe I should give it a try! I might be surprised and actually enjoy them.

As a newbee to your blog…I may have missed your suggestions for packing lunches. Is it okay to wrap sandwiches in waxed paper? Do you use stainless for salads and such? And what about snacks…no zip baggies I’m guessing?

Reply

Deliciously Organic August 17, 2011 at 3:08 pm

Wax paper is great and yes, I pack salads and other foods in stainless or glass containers. Here are my favorite paper bags: http://www.amazon.com/If-You-Care-Unbleached-Sandwich/dp/B003Y3D68S/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1313618724&sr=8-2

My family loves pecans!! Over the past two years, I have made drastic changes in my kitchen…it all started with milling my own wheat and making bread. This has also changed the way I cook and store my food! I use glass and bake with stainless steel. I also just recently purchased a clay rice cooker. No more “non-stick” for me!! Thanks for the chance to win!!

Hi Carrie,
I have a question about soaking and dehydrating nuts. Do you leave yours soaking overnight and the entire next day and then dehydrate overnight or do you drain in the morning and leave them sit until evening, then dehydrate? I would love to try doing that since we eat many nuts.

Thank you,
Kelly

Reply

Deliciously Organic August 20, 2011 at 5:14 pm

I drain them in the morning, spread them out on a baking sheet, and leave them there until it’s time to dehydrate in the oven. If you happen to soak them for 24 hours, it’s totally fine. Just drain, spread out on a baking sheet, and put them in the oven.

I’ve had one of the Mighty Nest glass bottles that I use when I travel for almost a year now and LOVE IT! It keeps the water cold for a surprisingly long time, and I can run it through the dishwasher when I get home. The outer lining also makes it shatter proof, which is ideal for a klutz like me. Several flight attendants on my trips have commented on what a great bottle it as well!

Thanks for the Mighty Nest link! We started school last week, and I’ve been trying to find some good looking containers that I can feel good about storing lunches in for my kids. Are the glass waterbottles safe for school since they are wrapped in silicone?

Reply

Deliciously Organic August 21, 2011 at 4:24 pm

The glass bottle is pretty hard to break b/c of the silicone web that it’s contained in, so in my opinion it’s safe for school. If you have any concerns I know the people at Mighty Nest would be happy to answer any questions you may have! :)

The pecans look amazing and delicious. I love Mighty Nest. I’ve purchased Lifefactory items from them. They have fantastic customer service and I love Lifefactory water bottles… Have 2 and my kids use them as bottles and water bottles :)

My mom makes candied pecans and I can just eat them by the handfuls. Yours look fantastic!

LOVE Might Nest and with my first child off to Kindergarten tomorrow, we’d love some help in the lunch department. I’m not sure if 11:59 is Eastern time or not, but I hope I’m in time to win! :)

It would be such a treat for my son to show off his new water bottle. Pecans are one of the few nuts that my son will eat. I can’t wait to surprise him with this recipe! Thanks!!

Can you do these in a dehydrator? My oven does not go down to 170.

A dehydrator is a great option!

Could you use stevia or xylitol instead of the maple syrup?

Reply

Deliciously Organic March 25, 2013 at 10:56 am

Liquid Stevia would be a good option.

My oven only goes as low as 200, what would my cooking time be then?

Hi Carrie,
I’m brand new to this site. I’ve recently been diagnosed with R.A. and I’m looking to find ways to combat the inflammation and pain without drugs. I just want to thank you so much for creating this wonderful website where people like me can find so much valuable information for free. I’m looking forward to changing my diet and hoping this will be the key to unlock the healing process. As a very wise man said, “let your food be your medicine and your medicine be your food.” I will definitely be buying your cook books. God bless you!
Sandra
