Spicy, Honey-Roasted Nuts
1/4 c honey
1 tsp ground cayenne pepper
4 c raw nuts and/or seeds
1/4 c turbinado sugar
1-2 tsp sea salt
dried fruit or candy
1. Preheat the over to 325 F. Line a large shallow pan with lightly oiled wax paper.
2. Melt the honey and cayenne pepper in a pan on the stove. Add the nuts/seeds and toss until coated.
3. Spread the nuts on the baking sheet and bake for 10 minutes.
4. Cool the nuts for about a minute. Then toss them in a bowl with the sugar and salt, and add the dried fruit. Spread it all out on the baking sheet again to cool completely.
The turbinado sugar is important. It adds crunch and looks pretty.
I bagged these and put them in this pitcher, but I think they'd be pretty in a clear jar.
