Hi all, I need to caramelize some pecans, I've found the below recipe which I am going to use, however I'm not sure on the oven temperature. It says 250, but I'm not sure if that is Fahrenheit or Celsius. It's either really hot or really cool, but as I'm not sure what the purpose of the oven stage is, I can't figure it out!

Any ideas?

Most of the recipes I've found for caramelized nuts or toasted nuts give a temperature of 300 to 350 F, so 250 C would be way too hot. Over 400 F would burn the nuts (IMHO), so the 250 is Fahrenheit.

This is what I am thinking, in fact, assuming that it's part of the caramelization process then it needs to be 160, so it must be the lower one, thanks! icon_smile.gif
