Introduction

You might think that nuts, untampered with, are perfect picking food as they are, and up to a point you'd be right. But try these, modestly adapted from the recipe for the spiced nuts served at the Union Square Cafe in New York and you'll truly know what perfection is. Fantastic for parties.

For US cup measures, use the toggle at the top of the ingredients list.

  • These nuts are so gorgeous and lovely to eat. Tried them out for the first time around a year or so ago, and have loved them since. Am making them for my own birthday!
