#HandcraftedEdibles2015 Crockpot Spiced Nuts

I love this spiced nut mix for multiple occasions, for tailgating, snacking around the house, and now, for gift giving!  It is a super simple recipe that allows the crockpot to do most of the work while you get other, more important, holiday things done (like shopping for my gift)!  Hehehe.

Here's what you need:

1 pound of nuts, all of one kind or, mixed
2 T grapeseed oil, you can use olive oil
2-3 t chili powder (or for spicy fun, use 1/2 t Berbere powder)
2 t cumin
2 t garlic powder
2 T worcestershire sauce
1/2 t onion powder
1/2 t salt

Here's what you do:

Combine all the ingredients except for the salt.  Mix well.   Cook, uncovered, in the crockpot, on high, for two hours.  Did you see the uncovered part?  It's important.  Stir in the salt after two hours and then let cool.  Store in airtight containers, in the refridge.  Serve them at room temperature.  Easy peasy.

Raw almonds, ready to start cooking!

After cooking, remove from crockpot, spread on cookie sheet and cool completely before storing.
So good, actually not too bad for you, and fun to give!

In an effort to make all of my holiday gifts this year, we are sharing recipes for hand-crafted edibles. Over the course of twelve weeks, we'll be sharing recipes that you can make at home to give to friends and loved ones, or things to serve at holiday parties. We hope you'll follow along for inspiration. You can find out more information, including the schedule: here.

This week, we are "going nuts" and sharing all sorts of recipes with nuts. Think spiced nuts or nutty fruit cake or whatever floats your nutty boat!

Here's what we're posting this week...
