Sweet and Spicy Nuts

Submitted by: LADYPHOENIX61

Introduction

This recipe is taken from Publix's "GRAPE" magazine. I'm nuts about nuts and I use my favorites in this-pecans. Almonds or walnuts may be substituted but the nutritional value will differ. I hope you like this too!
NOTE: With salt added the sodium content is 388.6mg/serving. Without salt, it's 0.6mg/serving.

Ingredients

    1 egg white
    1 Tbsp water
    1 lb pecan halves
    1/3 cup sugar
    2 tsp salt(See Note in introduction)
    1½ tsp ground cumin
    1 tsp paprika
    1 tsp ground coriander
    ½ tsp cayenne pepper
    ¼ tsp ground ginger


Directions

Lightly coat a foil-lined 15x10x1-inch baking pan with cooking spray. Preheat oven to 300°F. In a large bowl beat egg white and water with a fork until frothy. Add nuts and toss to coat.
Meanwhile, in a large plastic bag combine the sugar, salt (if adding), cumin, paprika, coriander, cayenne pepper, and ginger. Add the nut mixture; shake well to coat with the spice mixture. Spread nuts evenly on the prepared baking pan.
Bake for 35 to 40 minutes until the nuts are toasted and spice mixture is dry, stirring every 10 minutes. Remove from oven. Place baking pan on a wire rack and cool nuts completely in pan. Break nuts apart. Store in an airtight bag or container at room temperature up to 5 days or freeze up to 3 months.

  • Flat-out the best spiced nuts I have not only ever made, but the best I have ever TASTED. Giving some to everyone I know this Christmas! Thanks, Ladyphoenix61 for bringing us this recipe from Publix's "GRAPE" magazine! I did use mixed nuts instead of just pecans (fancier gift, right?). - 12/13/08
