Wine Bar Nut Mix

"From the Best of Food and Wine. This is a savory-sweet mix of pecans, almonds and walnuts. These would make a great gift."

Ready In:
6 cups




  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a bowl, toss the nuts with the maple syrup, olive oil, herbs and cayenne.
  • Spread the nuts on a rimmed baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes. (I place them on parchment paper for easy clean-up), stirring occasionally, until browned.
  • Season the nuts with salt and pepper and toss frequently until cooled.

    I made this for the holidays and it was a huge hit!! I had to put some in baggies for everyone to take home! They are very different, but addictive!! Worth a try... Especially good right out of the oven....

    I often give nuts as a savory alternative to cookies or bars. Since I am preparing to clear out my current supply of nuts in preparation for the cookie baking season, I was looking for a "different" option and this fit the bill. The results are indeed unlike most spiced nuts, but just wonderful. Each bite is a complex combination of sweet, spice, grassy and salty. For mine I choose a combination of rosemary and thyme plucked from the garden. Glad I mixed as the rosemary alone might have been too strong and the thyme alone too mild. My nut combination included almonds, pecans and in place of the walnuts cashews, brazil nuts and peanuts. My biggest problem now is not nibbling so much there are not enough to take to a friend later this week. Made for Photo Tag.

I have two boys who will usually eat most things I put in front of them. As a single mom I use them as my guinea pigs....sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. I have a huge garden, blueberry and blackberry bushes. I am always looking for a new recipe. I have three cats (Xiao Mao, which means little cat in Chinese, Pumpkin and Max) and two border collies, Lucy and Grace. All my animals come from Rescue Agencies. <a href="¤t=rsc002.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a> <a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"><a href="¤t=006.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a><a href="¤t=hilfiger001.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket">
