<p>Does anyone want to share a favourite seasoned nut recipe?  </p>
<p> </p>
<p>I have a box of raw assorted nuts (cashews, hazelnuts, almonds, walnuts, pecans) that I am going to season or spice up with some sort of flavours and include in an Xmas gift for my father.  I'm leaning more towards savory rather than sweet.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Any suggestions? </p>
<p>(I've looked on <a href="http://www.allrecipes.com" target="_blank">www.allrecipes.com</a> but haven't found anything great).</p>

<p>I think this was an Ina Garten recipe. If you don't want the heat of cayenne, then 1 to 2 tsp. of smoked paprika is a nice substitute (or use both): </p>
<p> </p>
<p><strong>Rosemary Roasted Cashews</strong></p>
<p>1 1/4 lb. roasted, unsalted cashews</p>
<p>2 Tbsp. coarsely chopped fresh rosemary</p>
<p>1/2 tsp. cayenne</p>
<p>2 tsp. dark brown sugar</p>
<p>2 tsp. kosher salt</p>
<p>2 Tbsp melted butter</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Bake nuts at 375F for 10 minutes, until warmed through. </p>
<p>Mix other ingredients in a bowl. </p>
<p>Toss nuts in mixture until coated. </p>
<p>Spread on a parchment lined cookie sheet to cool.</p>
<p>Makes 3 cups. </p>
<p> </p>
<p> </p>
<p>Another recipe: </p>
<p> </p>
<p>3 cups mixed nuts</p>
<p>1 egg white </p>
<p>1 Tbsp. orange concentrate</p>
<p>2/3 cup sugar</p>
<p>1 Tbsp orange zest</p>
<p>1 tsp cinnamon</p>
<p>1/2 tsp allspice</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Beat egg white with a fork until frothy. Add orange juice, sugar and spices. </p>
<p>Pour over nuts and toss together to combine.</p>
<p>Spread out on a parchment lined cookie sheet. </p>
<p>Bake at 275F for 25 to 30 minutes or until toasted and crisp, stirring every 10 minutes. Cool. </p>
<p>CAREFUL - goes from toasted to burnt sugar quickly. </p>
<p>*This is the original recipe that I wrote down, but I usually experiment with it. You can use less sugar, add ginger, cloves or other spices etc. </p>

<p>The recipe is for pecans, but I think mixed nuts would be fine.  We love these!  HTH.</p>
