Spiced Nuts


This tasty snack gets its flavor from 5-Spice Powder, which is a staple in Chinese cooking.

The powder is a combination of cinnamon, cloves, fennel seed, star anise and Szechuan peppercorns. You can find it in the spice aisle at the supermarket or combine the five spices yourself.

After you’ve finished making spiced nuts, you can use the spice on meats like chicken and duck or on seafood. Try sprinkling a little on stir-fried vegetables, too.

It may become one of your new spice rack staples.

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 tablespoons orange juice
  • 2 tablespoons Chinese 5 Spice Powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 cups raw nuts (almonds, cashews, pistachios, peanuts or any combination)

DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 250 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Combine orange juice, Chinese powder, and salt in a large bowl and add the nuts. Toss to coat them well. Spread on a rimmed cookie sheet to make an even layer.
  • Bake, stirring every 15 minutes until dry. Let cool completely and store in an airtight container for up to 3 weeks.
