here’s a tip:

To "sweeten" the pecan meats, put the pecan kernels in a bowl and fill with luke warm water. Stir and tumble the meats in the water for several minutes and you will see the discoloration in the water. Pour off that water and repeat the process at least once more. You will notice that the water becomes less and less discolored. Spread the pecans on a paper towel and allow them to dry for 10 or 15 minutes.
