Storage I store all my nuts in the freezer to ensure they stay fresh. Nuts are full of healthful oils and these oils are volatile and can turn rancid quickly, nuts are expensive so I think the freezer space they take up is absolutely worth it and the nuts taste so fresh, you can often find me foraging and munching in the freeze.
3 cups raw whole nuts – I used mix of walnuts, pecans and almonds
2-3 tbsp apple cider – can use citrus juice
2-3 tbsp maple syrup – optional
1-2 tsp spices like ground ginger, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, cardamom, cayenne – whatever you like
2-3 tsp salt – seasalt or pink himalayan
Preheat oven to 180C/ 350F
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper
In a bowl add cider and maple syrup and spices, mix well.
Add nuts, mix well and ensure nits are all evenly and lightly coated. If they look a little dry add a little more cider or maple and mix again.
Spread out on lined baking sheet in single layer.
Roast in preheated oven 7mins
Turn nuts with spatula and roast another 2-4mins until nicely brown but not burned. Watch closely they can burn easily.
Serve warm or leave to cool on the sheet pan.
Store in airtight container, I store all my nuts in the freezer, both raw and roasted.
