    BarbryT's Note:

    Sweet and spicy and crunchy and delicious. Great to have in your desk drawer for snacking when you "forget" to eat lunch. With vegan, vegetarian and omniverous friends, it served as a perfect hoiday gift. I must have made 3 quarts of it to give away...and that doesn't count the considerable amount I have consumed myself. May use one pre-made Roasted Ceci in place of the preparing the garbanzo beans as indicated below.

      This is a recipe I'll be making often to provide at-work-snacks for days when I've been too disorganised or exhausted to bring something suitable to eat. I was able to skip the first five steps as I have been buying regularly a product that this recipe has now replaced - cooked garbanza bean snacks. Problem was that they were somewhat bland! Except for omitting the cayenne pepper (I did add generous grindings of black pepper) - zero tolerance of anything hot and spicy - and using a rosemary and sage blend from a mini grinder instead of fresh rosemary, I followed the recipe exactly. LOVED the end result, and I will be experimenting more as I make these in future with different nut combinations. Thank you so much for posting this recipe! Made for PRMR.

      Very good stuff. Next time I will use less rosemary, just personal preference. I used Pistachios, Almonds and Cashews with much success. Thanks!
