candied nuts! safe, easy, GF and pesadich!
      04/08/05 04:30 AM

I'm going to post 2 recipes- sesame almonds and the other is my pecan/walnut recipe.... I've done the almonds in the cinnamon too- its all yummy!

required items:
CAST IRON SKILLET!
metal spatula!
foil spread on counter for cooling

Nothing else I have ever used carried the heat properly.. and a plastic spatula will melt!

(if your pan is smaller then you think you can comfortably stir this in when it becomes sticky without losing nuts- reduce proportionately.. I normally do 3/4 pound of almonds at once..)

sesame almonds:

1 pound plain almonds- unsalted!!!
1 cup sugar (can be adjusted to taste..less or more..)
1/4 cup sesame seeds, again- to taste

mix together in cast iron skillet over high heat until the sugar has completely melted... once it gets close it goes fast.. as soon as it has started melting you need to be constantly stirring to keep it from burning. Once you can no longer see sugar crystals immediately pour it onto foil and use spatula to spread nuts out.



cinnamon nuts:
1 pound either almonds or pecans
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup cinnamon (again can be adjusted to taste)

cook the same way as above.

One extra note to make cleanup easier... if you dunk the still hot pan in warm tap water immediately most of the sugar will wind up in the water... then you can boil off the water just like any other time you clean cast iron!
