Rosemary Roasted Nuts
Recipe as explained by Todd Porter, White On Rice Couple
Makes 1 pound of nuts
1 pound mixed nuts
1 tablespoon butter
3 tablespoons minced fresh rosemary
2 teaspoons light brown sugar
1 tablespoon smoked sea salt
1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Spread the nuts out in a single layer on a rimmed baking sheet. Roast the nuts in the preheated oven for 10 minutes, or until golden and fragrant. Stir several times during roasting to prevent the nuts from burning. Transfer the nuts to a large mixing bowl.
2. Heat a small skillet over medium heat. Add the butter, stirring while it melts. Continue to cook until specks of brown develop at the bottom of the pan. Stir these up and continue cooking until the butter turns a golden brown color. Add the rosemary and stir around the pan once or twice, then stir in the brown sugar and remove from the heat.
3. Add the butter mixture to the nuts and toss to coat. Add the sea salt to the bowl, and toss again. Spread the nuts to cool on a lined baking sheet. Serve warm or let cool.
