To roast nuts in a pan, follow these steps:
- Preheat a non-stick pan on medium heat.
- Add the nuts to the pan in a single layer.
- Stir frequently to prevent burning and ensure even roasting.
- Roast the nuts until they are fragrant and lightly golden brown.
- Remove from the heat and let them cool before serving or storing.
The exact roasting time will depend on the type of nuts and the size of the pieces. Generally, small nuts like pine nuts or chopped nuts will take 2-3 minutes, while larger nuts like almonds or pecans will take 5-7 minutes. Keep an eye on the nuts and adjust the heat as needed to prevent burning.
