Curried Spiced Nuts
A house perfumed with the heady smell of spiced nuts is a sure sign of the holidays. The key to this recipe is figuring out how to attach the right mix of spices to the nuts.
Why This Recipe Works
We wanted a spiced nuts recipe that filled our kitchen with their heady aroma—and also made a great gift. Our Curried Spice Nuts recipe satisfied both those requirements. Simmering the nuts in a spiced corn syrup glaze made the coating too candylike and chewy. Instead, we mixed the nuts with egg whites and let the excess liquid drain away. We then tossed the nuts with the spice mixture, which created a cohesive, delicious shell around each nut.
