Our Caramelizing Process: A Blend of Art and Science
For over 50 years, we’ve been perfecting our caramelizing process, which also is called “hot panning.” This calculated blend of art and science uses 16 rotating, gas-fired coper kettles. With this many kettles, we are one of the largest producers of pan-glazed nuts in the country. While roasting the nuts to flavor-enhancing perfection, we carefully add sugar to create a thin, sweet, crunchy coating. The result is a nut bursting with flavor and highlighted by sweet goodness.
Try All of Our Mouth-watering Varieties
Not only do we have one of the largest pan-roasting operations in the country, we also offer an abundance of pan-roasting options. While we caramelize your typical nuts — peanuts, pecans, almonds and cashews — we also create new taste sensations using different bases. You can enjoy pan-roasted:
- Sunflower seeds
- Dried corn
- Pretzel balls
We can also add inclusions such as dried fruits, chia, quinoa, crumbled potato chips, or other enhancing ingredients to give the pan-glazed center a new taste.
Tasty Snacks That Live Up to an Eight-decade Tradition of Excellence
It’s probably a safe bet Katharine Beecher never envisioned the company she founded way back in 1931 would be producing a wide assortment of popular snack food items today. Back then, she was more concerned with making sure her Manchester, PA, friends and neighbors had an ample supply of her delicious Butter Mints on hand. The diversification of the Katharine Beecher Candies product line since the acquisition of the company by the Warrell Corporation in 1974 has led to the development of additional tasty treats that would make Katharine proud. Our Pan-Glazed Nuts offer the same high-quality and old-fashioned goodness that have epitomized the Katharine Beecher brand for nearly 85 years.
