Sweet Spiced Nuts

These glossy, burnished, not-too-sweet and not-too-spicy nuts are irresistible. They keep for up to a month!

1/3 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon ground cardamom
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1  pinch of cayenne, optional
3 cups shelled nuts (pecans, almonds, walnuts, peanuts, cahews)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Generously oil a baking sheet.

In a saucepan on medium-high heat, stir together the sugar, 1/4 cup of water, salt, pepper, cardamom, cinnamon, and cayenne and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to a simmer and stir constantly for 1 minute, until the sugar is dissolved. Remove from the heat and add the nuts and mix well to evenly coat them with the syrup. Remove the coated nuts with a slotted spoon and spread them out on a prepared baking sheet.

Bake until browned, 10-15 minutes, stirring once after 5-6 minutes. After you’ve taken them out of the oven, stir again to break apart any clusters. Allow the nuts to cool before serving.
Chef Suggestions
With fresh or dried fruit, these make an elegant dessert.
