2 1/2 cups
coarsely chopped fresh rosemary
dark brown sugar
ground cayenne pepper
These are delicious! I would definitely recommend melting the butter and then adding the rest of the ingredients before mixing in the warm cashews. For the salt sensitive, I'd go short and then see what you think. Thanks for the recipe!
No margarine, ever.
I've been making these for years. My brother LOVES them, as does everyone! I've tried increasing the butter, but it just makes them greasy and they never fully dry, so don't do that! But I do recommend increasing the rosemary if you love it as much as I do!
This recipe is addictive. In fact, we don't like plain cashews much anymore. I do cut the salt to two teaspoons and I cut the cayenne in half cuz I am a whimp when it comes to heat. Awesome recipe Boombatine. Thanks for sharing!
These nuts are a delicious treat! Everyone likes spiced nuts, and these are a unique take on an old favorite. The rosemary flavor is unusual and special; the brown sugar and cayenne adds enough heat/sweet to perk your palate and make you do a double-take. (What spiced nuts are these?!) The salt adds a tiny bit of crispy crunch. And I used salted butter. I was introduced to these cashews when visiting my brother, who'd received them as a Christmas treat. When I was gifted a big tin of cashews the following Christmas, I decided to make them myself. Make sure you watch the oven carefully -- depending on the heat of your oven (ours runs hot) and the size of the cashews, they may cook a little quicker than expected, and as with all nuts, you will taste a burned flavor if they're even a little overdone. I'm not speaking from experience at all. ;-) These would be delicious made with almonds, too.
Cayenne gives it a nice little kick at the end when you don't expect it!
Great flavor, our guests loved them, and so did we!
I have been making this for a long time. Absolutely fabulous! I make a second batch without rosemary because we have one poor soul in the family who does not like rosemary.
