Recipe for Fire Dust Peanuts


    Fire Dust Peanuts

    Source: Found this in a neat little book titled Pan Asian Express by Barbara Witt.

    Very quick and very easy. I like to put out a bowl of these when I do Asian-themed dinners.

    1 pound honey roasted peanuts (or any
        other honey roasted nut/mixed nuts)
    1 tablespoon five spice powder
    1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
    Salt to taste (optional)

    Pour the peanuts into a large bowl, and mix the spices well in a small one. With a large spoon, scoop the nuts up and over, while sprinkling with the seasoning mixture. Coating and recoating the nuts thoroughly. Taste and add more seasoning or salt as needed. Store in airtight tin or couple of screw top jars.

    Makes about 1 quart.
