Glazed And Spiced Nuts
|Unsalted mixed whole nuts||3 Cup (48 tbs)|
|Granulated sugar||1 Cup (16 tbs)|
|Firmly packed brown sugar||1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)|
|Ground cinnamon||1⁄2 Teaspoon|
|Ground nutmeg||1⁄2 Teaspoon|
|Ground cloves||1⁄8 Teaspoon|
|Light corn syrup||1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)|
|Water||1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)|
1. Spread nuts in a shallow pan; heat in moderate oven (350°) 10 minutes, or until hot.
2. While nuts heat, combine granulated and brown sugars, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, corn syrup and water in a medium-size saucepan. Heat, stirring constantly, over low heat until sugars dissolve; then cook, without stirring, to 300° on a candy thermometer. (Syrup separates into brittle threads when dropped in cold water.)
3. Stir in nuts and butter or margarine until nuts are evenly coated. Spoon into well-buttered, 15x10x1-inch jelly-roll pan; spread in an even layer. Cool completely.
4. Break into bite-size pieces and store in tightly covered container.
