As much as we love raw almonds all by themselves, we also like to dress them up sometimes! This recipe can be used with any nut of choice or even mixed nuts. It assumes the nuts are salted, so if they are not - you might throw a few dashes on your nuts after you have tossed them in spices it goes nicely wiht the sweetness of the sugar.
6C Nuts of of choice
2 egg whites
2T Orange Juice (or a half an orange squeezed)
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp dr. ginger
1 tsp ground all spice
1- 1 1/2 C Maple Sugar (or Rapedura or Sucanat or sugar of choice)
This recipe fills a half gallon jar to the brim with a few "
"taster snacks" for the cook (and her kids!) on the side. :-)
These make wonderful make ahead treats on a snacky Shabbat lunch table! They are also nice to have a small pretty bowl setting on a night stand in a guest room with a cold bottle water for a (overnight) guest who has just arrived to "settle in" to their room and freshen up. :-)
