I stumbled upon this recipe on this site today. I've been making these types of nuts since the 80's. This recipe is slightly different than the one I use. I use 1 tsp. salt, 3/4 tsp. cinnamon, and 3/4 tsp. ground nutmeg. The nutmeg adds so much to the spice flavor of these nuts. My recipe is named Spiced Nuts. I make many batches of them due to high demand of family and friends and coworkers. It helps to mix the dry ingredients ahead of time in a small ziploc bag, such as a sandwich size bag - just seal the bag and shake it and smush it around until blended. I make 4 to 6 of those ahead of time. I whisk 1 egg white and 1 TBSP water in a large mixing bowl for 45 sec, then add the nuts and with a wooden spoon keep folding them in the bowl until all are wet with the egg mixture. Then I grab one of my pre-made bags of dry ingredients and pour over the wet nuts and stir and keep folding until all sugar is coated over nuts. Spread on greased pan and I bake in a 250 oven. Remember to stir every 15 min and do not overbake. These rock. The nutmeg does add a lot to them. I was surprised not to see nutmeg mentioned in the reviews I read through. Happy Holidays.
