An easy, delicious addition to any holiday buffet.
1 lb unsalted assorted nuts (cashews, almonds, peanuts, walnuts, pecans, brazil nuts, etc)
2 Tbls fresh rosemary, coarsely chopped
1/4 - 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper (depending on your heat tolerance)
2 tsp dark brown sugar
2 tsp kosher salt
1 Tbls butter, melted
Preheat the oven to 350 F. Toss the nuts in a large bowl to combine. Spread nuts on a cookie sheet and toast in the oven about 10 minutes or until light golden brown. Watch carefully so as not to burn.
While the nuts are roasting, combine the rosemary, cayenne, brown sugar, salt and melted butter. When the nuts are browned and still warm toss with the rosemary mixture to coat. Allow to cool completely, then store in an airtight container.
