20 Jan What’s Cookin’ Wednesday: Spiced Nuts
Once again: sometimes, the easiest recipes are the yummiest recipes!
These Texas Spiced Nuts are so good, you’ll never be able to make enough.
1 12-ounce can of salted mixed nuts
3/4 cup sugar (I use Splenda)
1 egg white
1/2 cup Texas Pepper Jelly, any flavor
What to do:
Beat the egg white until foamy. Add the pepper jelly and beat to foam again. Fold in the nuts, making sure they’re thoroughly coated. Sprinkle the sugar over this mixture, stir to coat again. Spread nut mixure on a buttered cookie sheeet and bake at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
The mixture will foam again in the oven.
After 20 minutes, remove from oven and cool. Store in a covered airtight container, but you probably won’t have any left to store after you set them out for your family to eat.
These spiced nuts are absolutely fantastic, and so quick and easy!
Texas spiced nuts also make an excellent gift, if you can slap your family’s hands away long enough to fill a pretty jar and tie a ribbon around it.
I’ve used Texas Pepper Jelly’s Pineapple Habanero, Apple Jalapeno, and Berry Blend pepper jellies, and we can’t wait to try other flavors as well.
