Bag of Nuts

Posted in Cooking with tags on June 6, 2008 by thepseudoepicurean

The Jman’s trip to the Royal Nut Company yesterday means that I now have bags of uber fresh hazelnuts, walnuts and cashews (the cashews were from this nut shop in Niddrie) sitting on my kitchen benchtop screaming “EAT ME! EAT ME!”.

But not before I season them though. Nuts can be full of wholesome goodness (or so I’d like to think) as long as you don’t fry them in oil or add too much salt in the seasoning. You see, I love bar/beer nuts, and we also know that beer nuts are just bad for you. So the best solution is to season them yourself at home.

It’s dead easy – toast them in a pan, make a spice seasoning of whatever you like, toss them together, and voila! This way, you can control the amount of salt, there’s no added oil, and best of all you really can’t get them any fresher than that!
