Spiced Nuts

printer-friendly version
2 cups sugar
2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. nutmeg, ground
3 Tbsp. cinnamon, ground
2 tsp. ginger, ground
1 Tbsp. cloves, ground
2 lg. eggs, separated
2 Tbsp. water, cold
1-3/4 cups nutmeats
Preheat oven to 125 – 150°.

Sift sugar, salt, and spices together three times. Beat eggs whites slightly and stir in cold water. Place nutmeats in a wire strainer and dip in egg mixture until each nut is well coated. Drain well and roll nuts in some of the spiced sugar.

Spread one-half of the spiced sugar in a shallow pan about 1/4-inch deep. Place nuts on the sugar, separating each one. Cover with the remaining sugar and bake for about 30 – 45 minutes.

Remove nuts from oven and sift. Save the spiced sugar in a closed jar in a cool, dry place.
