In the spirit of giving thanks, be sure to bring something special to your host or hostess this Thanksgiving.
One of my favorite things to make this time of year is spiced nuts; the recipe is simple and you can make a huge batch of them at once to hand out to teachers, friends, neighbors, and as hostess gifts!
Here is my favorite recipe:
1 lb. roasted, unsalted nuts (cashews, pecans, almonds, macadamia
2 tbsp. fresh rosemary, minced
1 tsp. cayenne pepper
1 tsp. coarse sea salt
2 tsp. dark brown sugar, packed
1 tbsp. melted butter
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Heat unsalted nuts for 5 minutes until warmed. Meanwhile, combine the remaining ingredients; will be a paste like consistency. Coat the warmed nuts with the paste; serve warm or at room temperature.
Fill your favorite jar, container or box with these yummy spiced nuts this year and as a crowning detail, add a decorative ribbon and a personalized gift tag.
