Spiced Nuts for the Holidays (every day is a holiday with these!)
From Dorothy McNett's recipes at www.dorothymcnett.com. Fabulous with blue cheeses, etc., and just to have around as a great snack/treat! Toss some into a fresh green salad, etc.
3/4 cup raw sugar
In glass or ceramic batter bowl, combine sugar, spices, salt, and water. Cook in microwave for 2 minutes. Stir. Cook 1 minute more, to dissolve the sugar and make a sticky syrup. Stir in the nuts. Return to microwave and cook for 3 minutes on high. Stir. Cook another 2 minutes, stir, and then 2 minutes more, or until the nuts have caramelized and are not yet burning but they are starting to "brown" up a bit. Spread hot nut mixture in a single layer on a silicone lined or buttered baking sheet. Allow to cool before breaking into chunks.
