Great method of sugar glazing nuts, very easy and quick and really adheres to the nuts with all the pepper and lemon zest along with.


  1. In large pan, combine cashews and sugar over medium high heat.
  2. Stir frequently until sugar starts to melt. Lower heat, and stir continuously for 10 minutes, or until sugar starts to fully melt and cover nuts.
  3. Add pepper and continue to cook for an additional minute or two, until nuts are well glazed and pepper is well mixed inches
  4. Add lemon zest and stir until well mixed.
  5. Pour onto sheet of wax paper on a cooling rack, and spread out. Allow to cool.
  6. Store in tightly-sealed container.
