A DIY Father’s Day Surprise: Rosemary Roasted Nuts
Still, I try to make sure that my husband and my father both know that we are thinking about them and appreciate them being in our lives by sharing a sweet sentiment and perhaps a few spicy nuts.
These rosemary spiced nuts are the ticket. There is plenty of complexity in this crunchy nut, kick of spice and just a tad bit of sweet hidden under all of it. Plus they’re great for fathers who live across country because they’ll ship well.
Rosemary Roasted Nuts
5 cups raw mixed nuts (I used almonds, hazelnuts, pecans and cashews)
3-4 springs rosemary
3 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
2 teaspoons sea salt
cracked black pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 350°. Stir together nuts, rosemary, olive oil, brown sugar, cayenne, sea salt and black pepper. Spread in a single layer on a cookie sheet. Bake for 20 minutes until nuts are roasted through. Remove from oven and allow to cool completely.
When nuts have cooled, place in jars or store in airtight containers.
Makes 5 cups mixed nuts.
