Found this recipe in November 1996 Family Circle Magazine. I make these for gift baskets during the holidays, I used my Amber Maple syrup and found it was a great additon. The recipe says to allow to cool, but I'll bet you won't be able to resist a few warm from the oven, they are soooo doggone good.

  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Heat oil in large skillet (I use cast iron) over high heat. Add almonds; saute, stirring 2 to 3 minutes, until almonds begin to brown. Add pecans; saute 1 minute. Add peanuts; saute 1 minute more.
  3. Lower heat to medium-high. Sprinkle nuts with salt, coriander, black pepper and cayenne pepper; toss to coat nuts.
  4. Pour maple syrup over nuts, saute until syrup is evaporated and nuts are lightly caramelized, 1 minute. Spoon into 15 x 10 x 1 inch baking pan or cookie sheet.
  5. Bake in 350 degree oven, tossing occasionally, for 30 minutes or until no longer sticky. Cool completely.
