With the holiday season just around the corner (sorry!) these nuts are perfect little gifts to make. Pop them into a lovely jar with a pretty ribbon and it’s such a thoughtful homemade gift.

They’re also perfect for sitting out in bowls around the house during the holiday season… or any time of the year, really. The rosemary and lemon zest gives them an added dimension of flavour over your usual spiced nuts tastes, and the buttery sweetness of the pecans crates a moreish snack.

I used olive oil, but you could use ghee or butter, if you prefer. If you use butter, make sure to keep a close eye on them in the oven because butter will burn easily.
