Orange Spiced Cashews

orange spiced cashews

When I have company over I like to make some type of nut concoction. Nuts round out a cheese plate and they are usually appreciated by people who are vegan & gluten free (as long as you use the appropriate ingredients).

These orange spiced cashews evoke images of Darjeeling Limited.

It's totally the combination orange zest, coriander & cumin with that sweet corn syrup.

You know what that means, right?! Tracy is going to do a weird visual thing again. Wait for it...

Orange Spiced Cashews

makes 2 1/2 cups

Recipe from Martha Stewart Living

  • 2 1/2 cups whole cashews
  • 1/4 cup light corn syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon coarse salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons finely grated orange zest
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • Pinch of cayenne pepper
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper; set aside. In a medium bowl, mix cashews with corn syrup until evenly coated. Set aside.

    In a small bowl, combine salt, zest, ginger, coriander, cumin, and cayenne. Sprinkle mixture over nuts, and stir until nuts are evenly coated. Transfer to one of the prepared baking sheets; spread in a single layer, separating nuts.

    Bake until the nuts are golden and the syrup is bubbling, about 15 minutes. Immediately transfer nuts to the other baking sheet. Separate cashews; let cool.
