Salty & Sweet Nut Mix
This nut trio of walnuts, almonds and pecans was lightly toasted and then tossed with a sugar, honey coating and an added kick from cayenne pepper. The result? Little clusters of sweet and salty.
- 3 cups walnuts raw
- 3 cups almonds raw
- 2 cups pecans raw
- ½ cup dried cranberries
- ⅓ cup granulated sugar
- ¼ cup honey melted
- 1 tsp cayenne pepper powder add more if desired
- 1 ½ tsp salt
Preheat the oven to 325°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a bowl, stir with a spoon to combine sugar, cayenne & salt.
Spaciously arrange the nuts on the prepared baking sheet. Drizzle the melted honey over the nuts and toss until all the nuts are coated in the honey. Sprinkle the sugar/cayenne mixture as well and toss once more.
Bake the nuts for 10 minutes or until roasted and slightly darker in colour.
Let the nuts cool for 10 minutes before removing and discarding the parchment paper. Once cooled, add the cranberries and toss to create little clusters. The nuts can be enjoyed immediately; however for the best crunch let the nuts completely cool before eating and storing in an airtight container.
