It never occurred to me to ask, but lately I’ve been buying raw nuts and roasting them at home. They taste much better.
I’m pretty sure that when a pecan pie recipe calls for pecans it means roasted pecans. But I can make a case either way, but I’m not literally going to make two different pies, so I thought I’d ask here.
One thing I never liked about pecan pie is how hard the pecans get. I thought if I used raw, they wouldn’t be so hard. On the other hand, I could also see how using raw pecans would make them kinda…squishy.
Have any of you ever used raw in a pie, or always roasted?
