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.

These nuts are fantastic. So easy and everyone accuses me of putting something in them that makes them addictive. Thanks for sharing. I think it is the Cayenne Pepper.

These are easy and taste great! I only used 1/4 tsp cloves.
