Spiced Nuts

Andrew and I went out to The Wine Shop last weekend. They served great spiced nuts. I tried to remember everything she told me was in them.

4 tablespoons butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup water
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon turmeric
1/2 teaspoon cayenne
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon fresh diced rosemary.
6 cups mixed nuts

Line a pan with foil.

Toast nuts in a skillet over medium heat. Place nuts on lined pan.

Melt butter in skillet. Stir in brown sugar and spices. Stir until a glaze forms. Stir in nuts. Continually stir for 2-5 minutes until nuts are well coated and there isn't much glaze left in the pan.

Spread glazed nuts on pan. Break apart any clumps. Cool until sugar sets. Store in air tight container.
