Caramelized Nuts with Musoffa Honey and Chile Piquin
CARAMELIZED NUTS WITH HONEY AND CHILE PIQUIN
YIELD: Makes 8 servings
- 1/4 cup - honey
- 3 cups - mixed nuts, plain
- 1 T - butter
- 1 tsp. - sea salt
- 1 tsp. - chile piquin or cayenne pepper, powdered
Heat honey and butter in a pot over low flame, stirring with a spatula until blended. Add the chile piquin and the salt. For best results, use a thick-based pot so that the heat distributes evenly.
Add nuts into pot, stirring every so often to make sure that the honey covers them completely. Place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, making sure to leave enough space between them so that they don't stick together. Let stand until cool.
Heat the oven to 250°F and bake the nuts for 10-15 minutes. Remove from oven. Let stand until cool and serve.
