Spiced Candied Nuts
The boiling water method for sugar-coating these nuts works like magic! See the quick instructions below.
table salt or 3/4 tsp Kosher salt
combination of pecan and walnut halves
raw shelled pistachios
Heat oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, or foil coated with cooking spray.
Stir together the sugar, salt, allspice, and cayenne in a small bowl
Bring 2 cups water to a boil in a medium saucepan. Remove from heat and immediately add the nuts. Let nuts stand in the water for 30 seconds; drain in a colander.
Return nuts to the saucepan. Quickly stir the sugar spice mixture into the hot wet nuts.
Spread nuts on prepared pan. Bake 15-20 minutes or until nuts are toasted and glazed, stirring every 5-6 minutes. Cool completely on pan then store in an airtight container.
