You may substitute blanched almonds or pecans for the cashews, or use a combination of the three for Spiced Cashews. The nuts may be prepared 3 days in advance and stored in an airtight container. Spices used are cinnamon, allspice and cloves - a tantalizing blend of healthy herbs!
2 large egg whites
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
3/4 pound cashews, unsalted
Preheat oven to 325-degrees. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper or foil.
In medium bowl, whisk together two egg whites and 1-teaspoon salt until salt dissolves. Into large bowl, sift together 2 cups sugar, 1-tablespoon cinnamon, 1-teaspoon nutmeg, and 1/4-teaspoon cloves.
Working in small batches, roll cashews in egg whites to coat completely. With fork, transfer each batch of cashews to spiced sugar and toss. Place cashews, 1 inch apart, on baking sheets and roast 30 to 35 minutes, until crisp. Cool completely, and store in airtight container.
Recipe makes 4 servings.
