Nuts can be served just as they are, added to other appetizers or used as a garnish. Something else you might like to try is making candied nuts. This means the coating is sweet and crunchy while the nut inside stays about the same, so you can bite through the aromatic coating and then enjoy the pecan inside. Vanilla and cinnamon are added to the coating mixture for a sweet, fragrant touch, which really suits the nut flavor. Place these in little bowls around the room or use them to garnish a gourmet salad. You can also serve them after the dinner, perhaps on a cheese and grape platter.
