Honey Spiced Nuts
This recipe really harkens to my recipe of cocoa candied pecans. And if I may bring out my geeky side for a moment, the smell is reminiscient of the roasted sweet pecan vendors at the Renaissance Faires. AYE!
Preheat oven to 325oF. Line a 13” x 9” x 2” pan with foil. Tear another sheet of foil the same size and place on counter; butter both. Pour nuts into pan; set aside.
In a microwave-safe, 1-cup measure, combine honey, 2 tablespoons butter, orange peel, and cinnamon. Microwave 60 to 90 seconds, stirring occasionally, until butter is melted. Pour honey mixture over nuts and stir until all are coated.
Bake for 20 minutes, stirring every 5 minutes. Remove from oven and pour onto reserved buttered foil, spreading nuts into a single layer to cool. Store in airtight container.
