Last Saturday I was invited to a Garden Party /Fund Raiser by my friend Susan, we had a lot of fun. At every table there was a small bowl of mixed nuts; my first nibble I thought Oh? These nuts have a little kick, and then I had to have some more and some more, they are so addicting. I was so glad to find out that they gave us all the recipes for the dishes that they served that day.
This morning before I went to work I was telling Richard about the nuts again, I told him I was going to make them when I got home today. But I was not going to use mix nuts because I didn’t have any that I was going to use the bag of almonds that I had in the freezer. I bought the bag from Costco a few months ago and there was almost 2 pound left, I just doubled all the ingredients and they turned out great. Be careful when you try these nuts you might not be able to stop yourself once you get started.
1 pound mixed nuts (walnuts pecans, cashews, or almonds) or any combination that you would like
½ teaspoon cayenne pepper
2 teaspoons salt
2 teaspoons fresh rosemary
2 teaspoons brown sugar
1 teaspoon butter, melted
Spread nuts out onto baking sheet and roast at 350⁰F for 10 minutes; stirring after first 5 minutes. Mix together in a small bowl cayenne pepper, salt, and brown sugar; set aside. After roasting, pour nuts into a large mixing bowl. Toss with melted butter coating all the nuts; then toss with cayenne pepper mixture stirring to coat all the nuts. Spread back onto the baking sheet to cool. Store in air tight container.Pin It
