Spicy Nuts! Perfect For Christmas
One of our absolute ‘must haves’ at Christmas time, are bowls of these deliciously fragrant and nutritious homemade spicy nuts. To tell you the truth, they’re good at any time of year. Just look at the honey glistening on these, all ready to go into the oven. I got the recipe from a lovely neighbour who foolishly parked a bowl of these in front of me while we were chatting one day. I think it might be a Nigella recipe but I’m not 100% sure. Either way, your Christmas really won’t be complete without them. They’re so easy to make en masse for family and friends to nibble on when they come to visit you over the Christmas holidays. Very helpful when you haven’t quite got yourself together in the kitchen because you were too busy chatting. Careful though, they’ll totally ruin your appetite.
