This spicy nut mixture is a great snack to set out when entertaining guests for a cocktail hour. A little bit of butter, sugar, and a trio of spices make for the perfect bite. Cumin, sumac, and cayenne come together perfectly to add a bit of spice. These nuts come together in about 25 minutes, just the kind of recipe you need when last minute guests are on their way.

Ingredients

  • 400 grams macadamia nuts (mix of, almonds, and cashew nuts, preferably unsalted, otherwise, adjust the amount of salt)
  • 1 tablespoon butter oil
  • 2 teaspoons muscovado sugar
  • 2 teaspoons sea salt
  • sumac
  • cumin
  • cayenne powder

Directions

  1. Put the nuts in a dry pan (without oil) and lightly brown while turning regularly. Remove from heat and set aside.
  2. In the skillet, heat the butter (or oil) and add muscovado sugar, sea salt, 2 pinches of sumac and cumin and 1 pinch of cayenne powder. Stir until the mixture produces a pleasant smell.
  3. Add nuts, remove from heat, and stir well in order to coat the dried fruits with the spicy mixture. Let cool. Spice mixture can be made to taste, muscovado sugar adds a pleasant caramel flavor:

I have made these nuts for several parties and keep getting requests for more. They are spicy and sweet and hard to resist. Just make sure to watch the nuts when you toast them so they do not burn.
