I love nuts, especially mixed as it gives me all the favorites. Cashews, almonds, walnuts, peanuts, pistachios. So delicious. Unsalted ones are better as you can incorporate it into several dishes. Here's a simple microwaveable scrumptious dessert or snack.
*1/2 cup sugar
*1/4 cup water
*1 tbsp unsalted butter or margarine
*1/2 tsp ground ginger
*1/4 tsp baking soda
*3 cups mixed nuts
1.) Place water, sugar, and butter into a microwaveable dish. Cook on high for 4 minutes, and stir it twice along the way.
2.) Take the syrup out of microwave, add the ginger and baking soda stirring until it's blended. Pour over the mixed nuts stirring until everything is coated and syrup gets dissolved. Take nuts and spread onto a cookie sheet and let them cool. Once cool eat them and store leftovers. (They can last several weeks in a airtight container room temperature and several months in the refrigerator.)
