  1. Combine oil and nuts in a medium bowl; set aside.
  2. In a small saucepan, melt SMUCKER'S(R) jelly over medium heat. Add paprika and cumin. Cook the mixture to the hard ball stage, 260 degrees F measured on a candy thermometer (or you can test for the hard ball stage by dropping a teaspoon of the mixture into a glass of iced water; the mixture will harden instantly if it has reached the proper temperature).
  3. Immediately pour the mixture over the nuts. Stir with a wooden spoon to evenly coat the nut mixture. Cool for five minutes. Combine brown sugar, paprika and cumin in a small bowl. Once cool enough to handle, sprinkle nuts with the brown sugar mixture. Stir to combine.
  4. Let cool completely, then pack into decorative, airtight tins.


  • Variation
  • Use SMUCKER'S(R) Orange Marmalade in place of the SMUCKER'S(R) Strawberry Jelly.
