“The first time I made this I had a small tub of raw nuts in my cabinet and didn't know what to do with them. My mom gave me the recipe, and after I made it I couldn't stop eating them. I am not a nut person, but I am totally addicted to these coated nuts. They're perfect for parties and festive occasions!” - by veggigoddess
Original recipe yields 16 - servings
- Preheat oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C).
- Place the nuts on a large baking pan and bake in the preheated oven 10 to 12 minutes, taking care they do not burn. Remove from heat and let cool approximately 5 minutes.
- In a small bowl, mix the white sugar, brown sugar, salt, pepper, cumin, curry powder, cloves and cinnamon.
- In a large saucepan over medium heat, place the nuts and approximately 1/2 the sugar mixture. When the mixture begins to melt, mix in the remaining mixture. Shake the pan until all the nuts are coated, about 5 minutes. Use a spoon to separate nuts that stick together. Remove from heat and cool on a lightly greased baking sheet or wax paper. Separate the nuts to prevent sticking.

"Okay, I read the reviews and went "Hmmmmmmm", so, I did it my way, and these were great. Frist, I used canned nuts, not raw, didn't heat them, and left out the salt since they were already salted. T..." See morehen I mixed together all the sugar and spices, but not the nuts, in a non-stick saucepan. I added 2 teaspoons of water to the sugar/spice mixture to help dissolve everything, then when it just started to boil, I put the nuts in and kept stirring for about 3 minutes. Then, I put the nuts in a bowl and microwaved for 2 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds. This way, all the nuts were not only coated, but glazed as well. When they were cool, they didn't stick together at all."
"This was a terrible recipe as originally written. I wasted 3 lbs of nuts before I modified the recipe enough to get desirable results. The spice mix needs 2 tsp. of liquid to adequately melt the sug..." See morears so the nuts will be coated. Although the mix smelled GREAT, there was not enough flavor so I also added 3/4 tsp of cayenne to get a spicy taste."
"The sugar completely ruins the flavor and they weren't that spicy. The nuts came out in burnt globs even though I kept a constant eye on them and stirred them often. The nutmeg and clove turned bitt..." See moreer in the oven. I ended up throwing the entire batch out, because even the nuts that didn't burn had a bitter taste to them. I'll keep looking for a better spicy glazed nut recipe."
