Honey Roasted Nuts

I make these candied honey roasted nuts and keep them in an air-tight container for a few weeks. I’ve tried this recipe a few ways, with pecans, walnuts, and almonds. It’s nice to have these on hand to brighten otherwise potentially dull meals. Sometimes, when there isn’t much time I will pull this recipe together and make a plate with a few chunks of cheese, some fresh fruit, some crackers, and voila, it’s dinnertime!

Please note: these candied nuts get sticky. It’s just the way it is. You’ll always find ways to use them. If you have a dehydrator you may want to experiment with this recipe using the dehydrator.
