Spiced Nuts

Spiced Nuts


Ingredients

Scale
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 4 cups unsalted mixed nuts (such as walnuts, pecans, hazelnuts, and almonds)
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 6 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt

Instructions

  1. Mix spices and reserve.
  2. Heat the nuts in a dry skillet and cook, stirring frequently, until they begin to toast, about 4 minutes. Add the butter and cook, stirring, until the nuts begin to darken, about 1 minute. Add the spices, the sugar, 1 tablespoon water, and the salt and cook, stirring, until the sauce thickens and the nuts are glazed about 5 minutes.
  3. Remove the nuts from the heat and transfer to a baking sheet lined with aluminum foil, separating them with a fork. Let the nuts stand until cooled and the sugar has hardened about 10 minutes. Store in an airtight container.
  4. Makes 4 cups
