Sweet & salty nuts

by Fiona Smith | Cuisine issue #155
Serves: Makes 3 cupsI like to have some homemade spiced nuts on hand at Christmas - they're great to put out at a party or just serve when friends pop in.

3 cups mixed nuts
1 egg white
1⁄3 cup brown sugar
pinch of ground cloves, cayennepepper, allspice or mustardpowder (or use them all)
1 teaspoon flaky sea salt

Preheat the oven to 150°C. Spread the nuts over a baking tray in an even layer. Bake for 15-20 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the nuts are just smelling toasted. Allow to cool slightly.

Whisk the egg white a little in a bowl then add the cooled nuts and stir to coat them. Sprinkle the sugar and spices over the nuts and mix well to combine. Spread over a baking paper-lined baking tray and sprinkle with the salt. Bake for 25 minutes, stirring once. Allow to cool then serve or store in an airtight container.
