Peg's Salt Savory Spiced Nuts

Ingredients • 2-1/4 cups (18-ounces) assorted unsalted nuts (E.g., raw peanuts, cashews, walnuts, pecans and almonds) • 2 tablespoons coarsely chopped fresh rosemary leaves • ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper* • 2 teaspoons dark brown sugar • ½ tsp. white sugar • 2 teaspoons Peg’s Salt • 1-1/2 tablespoon unsalted butter, melted


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Place nuts on a rimmed baking sheet and toast until brown, 10 to 15 minutes.

In a large bowl, combine the rosemary, cayenne, sugar, salt and melted butter.

Thoroughly toss the toasted nuts in the spiced butter while still warm. Mix with rubber spatula to keep nuts intact while coating them.

Return nuts to baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake until nuts are semidry and the spice mixture slightly caramelizes, about 5 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool.

Nuts can be stored in an airtight container for up to 3 weeks.

*If you really like spicy, adjust cayenne up to ½ tsp. according to taste.
