A great spiced nut is one of the first things people gravitate towards. A good mix of sweet, salty, and warm fall spices is what makes this recipe irresistible.
When choosing a nut mix, make sure to pick a fancy grade. “Fancy” lets you know the meat of the nut will be larger. The larger pieces latch onto the sugar-spice blend and are more of a special treat.
The blend of spices in this recipe is not the usual fall blend because uses Garam masala: a blend of cumin, coriander, cinnamon, black pepper, cloves, and nutmeg. The mix is rich and full and evokes a warm blend, perfect for the cooler fall season.
