Every year one of my aunts sends around treats of candied nuts. I have been dreaming about tasty candied nuts and seeds so I decided to make some because I couldn’t wait. Impatient much? This is a large batch for entertaining, big families, gifting or saving to eat all by ones self. Teehee! The recipe is easily cut in half. They are spicy, sweet and salty all in one. I used almonds, pepitas (pumpkin seeds), walnuts and pecans. You can use any blend you would like or just one but or seed! It’s super easy and tasty!
You will need:
*2 lbs of raw unsalted nuts or seeds. I used 8 ounces each of almonds (about 1.5 cups), pepitas (about 2 cups), walnuts (about 2.5 cups) and pecans (about 2 cups). It’s easier to weigh it all but if you can I gave approximates for measuring.
*2 egg whites
*1 cup white sugar
*1 cup brown sugar
*2 tablespoons water
*1 1/2 tablespoons salt
*1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
*1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
Bake at 250 degrees Fahrenheit for one hour. Stirring every ten minutes.
