Rosemary and Spiced Nuts

11 Dec

These are no doubt THE BEST EVER spiced nuts I’ve tasted! The recipe comes from one of my most beloved friends, Dene Rosemeyer, who is an AWESOME home chef. They are a perfect, savory nibble with a glass of wine or for a scrumptious homemade gift (as well as a practical one if traveling).


  • 2 1/2 Cups Raw Mixed Nuts
  • 2 Tbs Olive Oil
  • 1 1/2 Tbs Finely Chopped Fresh Rosemary
  • 1 Tbs Sugar
  • 1 1/2 Tsp Ground Cumin (Toasted)
  • 1 Tsp Salt
  • 1 Tsp Freshly Ground Black Pepper
  • 1/4 Tsp Cayenne Pepper


  • Preheat oven to 300 (°F) degrees.
  • Place nuts in a bowl.
  • Pour the oil into a small, heavy sauce pan and warm over medium-low heat until warm.
  • Add Rosemary, stir until the mixture is aromatic (1 minute).
  • Pour flavored oil over nuts.
  • Add Sugar, Cumin, Salt, Black Pepper and Cayenne. Stir to coat evenly.
  • Transfer to baking pan. Bake, stirring occasionally, until nuts are toasted, about 20 minutes.
  • Remove and let cool completely. Store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 4 days.

Makes 2 1/2 cups.
