This recipe for flavored nuts is wonderful because it will stay fresh for several weeks. You can use walnuts, blanched almonds or pecans, or a mixture of nuts, to make this recipe.


1 pound unsalted nuts (about 4 cups), walnuts, blanched almonds, pecans or a mixture
2 egg whites
1 cup sugar
Dash salt
1/2 cup butter

Spread the nuts in a 10-by-15-inch jellyroll pan. Place the pan in a 325-degree oven and toast the nuts until they are lightly browned, about 10 minutes.

Beat egg whites until stiff peaks form. Beat sugar and salt into the egg whites. Fold the nuts into the egg whites.


Place the butter in the jellyroll pan and put the pan back into the hot oven until the butter is melted. Spread the nut-and-egg-white mixture over the melted butter.

Return the pan to the oven and bake at 325 degrees for about 30 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes until no butter remains in the pan. Cool and store in an airtight container.
