Tips and Tricks

– You want the nuts crushed fine, but not utterly powdered. The finer they are chopped, the more likely they are to stick to the mustard mixture. – If you find yourself getting annoyed by nuts that just won't stay put, just chop them a little bit more and you should be good to go. – Remember too that you can use other nuts for this recipe, so if you don't like pecans, try something different.
