2 tablespoons cumin

1/4 teaspoon ground clove

2 tablespoons cayenne

1/2 teaspoon nutmeg

 

simple syrup:

1/4 cup sugar

1/4 cup water

 

2 large bags of pecans and/or cashews (approx. 1.5 lb.)

1 teaspoon salt

 

      1. Combine all spice mix ingredients in a bowl.  Set aside.

 

      2. Make Simple Syrup by combining 1/4 cup sugar and 1/4 cup water in a medium saucepan.  Heat at medium high heat and stir constantly until sugar is dissolved.  Remove from heat and pour simple syrup into a large bowl.  Add nuts to bowl and stir to coat nuts completely with syrup.

 

      3. Add 1/4 cup of spice mix to nuts and toss to coat well.

 

      4. Spread nuts in a large cookie sheet and sprinkle with 1 teaspoon salt.

 

      5. Bake at 325 degrees for 35 minutes (stir nuts around several times while cooking).  Remove and allow cooling.  Enjoy!
