Spiced nuts

Spiced Nuts

Spiced nuts make a scrumptious sweet-spicy snack or a wonderful addition to a salad. They keep well, so they’re great as holiday gifts. 

Use pecans, walnuts, or a mix.

Suggested uses for the leftover egg yolk: Add to scrambled eggs, omelets, French toast, or baked custard, or use in homemade mayonnaise.
