Today I received an unexpected courier package. A big basket of beautiful products from Aratiki Honey.
A recipe I entered in an Aratiki promotion was a winner.
Here it is below...
SPICY HONEY NUTS
• 2 1/2 cups mixed raw nuts - almonds, hazelnuts, walnuts, cashews, peanuts (anything you have)
• 1/2 cup mixed seeds - sunflowers, pumpkin
• 1 egg white
1/4 cup honey
• 1 Tbsp Chinese five spice powder
• 1 tsp cayenne pepper
Beat an egg white in a large bowl. Add to thenuts and seeds and mix til nuts are coated.
Heat the honey in the microwave (or in a small pot on the stove) until warm and runny.Add the spices and mix.
Pour the honey and spice mixture over the nuts and seeds, stir well, then place in a roasting tray which has been lined with baking paper.
Bake in the oven (180°C)for 15 minutes. Stir then bake for 5 more minutes until golden and crisp.
Cool. Store in an airtight container in the fridge.
