Spiced Nuts (adapted from Union Square Cafe's bar nuts)
- 1 About 1 cup each of almonds, cashews, pecans, walnuts, hazelnuts, brazil nuts, and pepitas. (or any combination you like, of course).
- 3 T minced fresh rosemary
- 1 t cayenne
- 1 t smoked sweet paprika, "pimentón"
- 1 t nutmeg
- 2 T dark brown sugar
- 2 T kosher salt
- 3 T butter, melted
Preheat oven to 400. Toast nuts until golden on a cookie sheet (about 10 - 15 minutes). Make sure to mix them periodically during the toasting so they don't burn. Mix spices, sugar and melted butter together in a bowl. Dump the nuts in a large mixing bowl, dump the yummy mixture on top, and stir everything together until the nuts are evenly coated. Let cool, taste for saltiness and sprinkle with sea salt if necessary (which is always, for me) and serve!
