Recipe for Sweet Spiced Nuts


    Sweet Spiced Nuts

    1/4 cup honey
    4 teaspoons Thai green curry paste or hot curry powder
    2 teaspoons olive oil
    1 1/4 teaspoons salt
    1 cup cashews
    1 cup macadamia nuts
    1 cup almonds
    1 cup pecan halves
    1/3 cup sweetened shredded dried coconut

    In a bowl, mix honey, curry paste, olive oil and salt. Add all the nuts and the coconut; mix well. Spread in a single layer on a 15 x 10-inch pan. Bake at 300 degrees F, turning often with a wide spatula, until nuts are dark gold, about 30 minutes.

    Remove from oven and turn nuts often as they cool. Serve warm or cool.

    Yields about 4 cups.

    NOTE: If making nuts up to 1 week ahead, cool, package airtight, and chill.
