Spiced mixed nut selection
- 50g caster sugar
- 1 level tsp salt
- 1/2 level tsp ground cumin
- 1 level tsp chilli powder
- 1/4 level tsp ground allspice
- 1/2 level tsp cayenne
- 1 medium egg (white only)
- 500g mixed raw nuts, such as almonds, pecans, macadamia and cashews
Pre-heat the oven to 140C/120C Fan/Gas 1. Line two baking trays with baking paper. Mix sugar with salt, cumin, chilli powder, allspice and cayenne.
Whisk egg white in a large bowl until foamy. Add the spice mix and whisk until just evenly mixed.
Add nuts and stir to coat. Lift the nuts out using a draining spoon and spread out on the trays.
Bake for 35 minutes, then stir around on the tray using a large spoon to break them up. Take care doing this as the coating will be very hot. Return to the oven for 15 minutes. Carefully lift the paper and nuts onto racks to cool completely.
To serve, make paper boxes or cones threaded with ribbon, then fill with nuts.
