“I like the idea of sweet AND savory. I saw the recipe in O magazine. However, I have offered a few other options. Remember, cooking is all about choice.....every time. The recipe specified raw nuts.....however use what you've got! Mix it up use other nuts. Add other savory herbs. . Use a different zest. Use all honey or try some agave.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Read the description, all of it. Make choices to suit you.
  2. Preheat oven to 325. Put silpat on a baking sheet or line it with parchment.
  3. Combine the nuts in a bowl.
  4. In the largest bowl that will go in the microwave, just heat the honey, molasses and zest, maybe 10-20 seconds. Stir in the rosemary, cayenne, and paprika. ALTERNATIVELY just heat it all in a large enough pot to stir in all the nuts.
  5. Mix in the nuts covering with all that goodness.
  6. Spread the nuts on your prepared baking sheet. Sprinkle the sugar, evenly over the top. Sprinkle half the salt. Bake in the center of the oven for 30-35 minutes or until lightly browned -- that sugar will caramelize. Right after you take them out of the oven, sprinkle the 2nd half of the salt.
  7. Let cool, completely, about an hour. Break nuts apart and serve or place in an airtight container.
