These are the perfect accompaniment to a honey-laced New Year’s cocktail.*
3 tablespoons honey
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1 teaspoon dried rosemary
1/2 teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
3 cups mixed raw nuts (such as walnuts, pecans, almonds and hazelnuts)
Preheat the oven to 350° F.
In a medium bowl, whisk honey with sugar, rosemary, salt and pepper. Add mixed nuts, toss to coat and spread evenly on a parchment-lined rimmed baking sheet.
Roast until fragrant and golden, 12-13 minutes. Remove from oven, let cool completely and loosen nuts into a serving bowl. Spiced nuts can be stored in an airtight container for up to 1 week.
