Orange Spiced Cashews

Orange Spiced Cashews

When I have company over I like to make some type of nut concoction. Nuts round out a cheese plate and they are usually appreciated by people who are vegan & gluten free (as long as you use the appropriate ingredients).

These orange spiced cashews evoke images of Darjeeling Limited.

It’s totally the combination orange zest, coriander & cumin with that sweet corn syrup.

You know what that means, right?! Tracy is going to do a weird visual thing again. Wait for it…

Why won’t Owen Wilson look at my nuts??

And we’re off.

This is sooooooooooo easy.

Even a caveman can do it. Ewww. Why did I type that?

Nuts in a bowl.

Spices & orange zest. I always spill spices. Gimme a break.

Nuts in a bigger bowl cuz I can space on spacial recognition sometimes. Corn syrup on nuts.

Spices all over nuts. STIR time.

Oh yeah! Cayenne. Go easy on it if you have company. If I was making it for me & Casey I would add 2 pinches.

Spread nuts on a parchment lined baking sheet.

Put those nuts in the oven.

NUTS are done!

The best part is that you get a few clusters in the mix.
