Reviews forSeasoned Mixed Nuts
"Wow! These nuts are amazing. My husband requests them all the time. I'm even going to experiment with the spices in the future. Perhaps cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice and cocoa powder. They make a great gift too. Sure beats paying for the overpriced specialty nuts in the store."
"Thought these very very good. Could I toast some almonds and add them in place of pecans? Hubby loves almonds while pecans do not rate high on his list?"
"Excellent,they were a huge hit.Will definitely will make again."
"why don't you just print it out?"
"I would like to have the recipe in writing for next time I want to make them"
"This is my very favorite recipe for spiced nuts, and I've tried quite a few different recipes. I've tried ones where you're supposed to toss the nuts in foamy egg whites, and I think this recipe and way of preparing them is much better. It's very easy to make, and the cardamom adds such a nice flavor. I love making these nuts to put on a spinach salad with dried cranberries and feta cheese."
"do not make this recipe! we tried twice, and it never turned out, sugar and butter just clumped up! I'm sure there's something missing!"
"I'm not a big fan of the cardamom on the nuts. I get nothing but compliments from those I gave the nuts to for the holidays."
"These nuts are terrific! easy to make and have a really nice flavor to them. Will definitely make them again."
