Join Bijouxs in the kitchen with a collection of recipes perfect as handcrafted gifts for sharing – Bijouxs Handcrafted Holidays | Sweet & Savory. To begin, some charming little bites – Sugar & Spice Peans – little kitchen jewels to share.
It just so happens this Los Angeles native has spent quite a bit of time in the lovely state of Georgia – autumn trips at Thanksgiving to a rural farm, which included plenty of time for antiquing, kids riding horses, road trips in search of the best BBQ around and of course snacking on scrumptious bowls of Georgia pecans. It is upon these memories of hospitality that this recipe was fashioned.
It’s no wonder I chose Georgia pecans as one the five little jewels from the PMA Fresh Summit back in October, but a little more was involved. So what makes Georgia pecans little jewels? The fact is that the pecan is the only native American nut tree, along with their deliciousness, pecans also pack an antioxidant punch, more capacity than most other nuts, so munch away on these little gems.
Sugar & Spice Pecans are classic Southern sugared pecans with a hint of warming spice – a simple holiday gift or hostess gift take-along. Toasting and grinding your own spices makes all the difference in the world. This warming spice blend can also be added to a cup of hot milky tea, cider or add pinch in holiday baked goods instead of cinnamon.
In the true essence of a handcrafted holiday, I canvased through all craft and paper goods on hand – what emerged were little jewel pillow boxes filled with Sugar & Spice Pecans, tied up in a package made from corrugated packing wrap and hand stamped labels secured with twine – a truly found handcrafted holiday.
