How Do I Make Honey N Spice Nuts?
Here is another of my SIS (simple is smart) recipes.
- Start with a non-stick skillet and melt the butter on medium heat.
- Add the honey, cinnamon, and salt. Add anywhere from a pinch to 1/4 of a teaspoon of cayenne pepper.
- Stir to mix together and add the nuts. Any type of nuts will work. Walnuts and pecans are my favorites.
- Cook on medium heat until the mixture is a deep golden brown.
- Remove from the heat and spread them on a lightly greased cookie sheet. Stir the nuts as they cool to keep them from sticking together.
- Store in an airtight container. If the nuts get sticky from the humidity, they can be dried in the oven at 225-degrees F for 30 – 60 minutes.
