Welcome to Week 43 of Reddit’s 52 weeks of cooking challenge. This week’s theme is Candied. I was originally going to candy orange peels, cover them in the darkest chocolate I could find, take a picture, and polish them off in one sitting while watching Downton Abbey, but alas I could not locate organic oranges.
I moseyed/sauntered/danced through the bulk isle in the Grocery store the other day humming frosty the snowman, or Rudolf the Red Nosed Reindeer, clearly in a subtle holiday mood.I was looking for a sign from the bulk foods. I stopped in front of the pecans, and It came to me! I knew what I was going to candy! Friends, I think you will agree, nothing says the holidays like spiced candied nuts.
These are so buttery and good with lots of yummy spices and some subtle, lingering heat from the cayenne pepper. You will want to make a double batch or a triple batch. Maybe you will tie these spicy nuts up in a little bag and give them as gifts to friends. Perhaps you will eat these sweet spicy little morsels in bed while coveting a glass or three of red wine. However you eat them, be sure to share some of them with your loved ones.
