I just LOVE spiced nuts! I decided to gather all the recipes on Zaar that sounded good to me so that I can start working my way through them, LOL! These recipes would also be great for gift giving any time of the year. Cookbook cover photo by Hey Jude!
This is posted for the World Tour 2005 RecipeZaar event. I haven't tried it yet, but it's so quick and easy, has readily available ingredients, and looks so good, I might just make it before the day is out!
The recipe comes from the Hadassah Jewish Holiday Cookbook - a collection of traditional recipes from contemporary kosher kitchen. It was listed in the Passover section.
These are so fast and easy to make and look so pretty in a nice candy dish. This recipe only makes 1/2 pound (the program will not allow me a 1/2 so I put 1 pound...please ignore) so prepare to make a couple batches. They will go very fast.
Please don't be put off by the unusual combination of spices in this recipe...they work wonderfully well together. Last year I made this and divided it up into canning jars to give as Christmas gifts...a big hit! Credit for recipe goes to Canadian Living Magazine.
Addictive sweet/hot pecans which are as hot or as mild as you like them, depending upon amount of cayenne used. Although they are slightly sweet, they don't stick to your hands. A well-balance blend of flavors that whets your appetite, but are good for diabetics and other persons trying to lower their carbohydrate intake. Each Tbs. of nuts contains 0.9 grams of carbs, versus double that amount if made with regular sugar. Atkins fans take note!
Make your own! I was surprised not to find this recipe on here - it's very easy and tastes better than store bought canned. I clipped this recipe from some newspaper. If you like really sweet then try sprinkling with sugar. DO NOT USE MARGARINE - THEY WILL BURN OR GET TOO DARK. Photos taken by me on 2/26/06.
Holiday Treats! Can them for gifts! Top Christmas cookies with them! Garnish a salad with them. Or just eat them as is yummy good. Decorate a cake or pumpkin pie with them. Ok you know what you better double the recipe!
