Maple Spiced Nuts, So, So Moorish!

Maple Spiced Nuts, So, So Moorish!

I have been wanting to learn how to make spiced nuts for ages, having found them being sold at an exorbitant price at a Christmas Fair once and becoming totally addicted I made it my ambition to find an equally nice recipe and bingo, Waitrose popped it up out of the blue!.  Thanks, Waitrose.

There is a warning with these nuts, they are totally  moorish.  At the moment they seem to go from room to room, each jar rapidly declining.  I am making the excuse also it is healthy to eat nuts, well it is right?

Maple Spiced Nuts

How to make them?

Maple Spiced Nuts

Ingredients – Serves approx 12 little handfuls!

  • 1 tbsp sunflower
  • 2 tsp English mustard powder
  • 2 tsp garam masala
  • 1 tsp mild chilli powder
  • 250g mixed unsalted nuts
  • 100g macadamia nuts
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup

(as you can imagine you can really play with the ingredients)


    1. Preheat the oven to 200 C (180 fan), mark 6.  Pour the oil into a large roasting tin and heat in the oven for 5 mins.
    2. Meanwhile in a small bowl mix together the mustard powder, garam masala, chilli powder, some freshly ground black pepper and 1 tsp salt.  I prefer sea salt.
    3. Add all the nuts to the hot oil.  Sprinkle over the spice mix and drizzle with maple syrup.  Mix to coat.  Roast for 10 min until golden, tossing halfway.
    4. Empty the nuts on to a baking tray and leave to cool completely before serving.
    5. This can be made up to 2 weeks ahead and kept in an airtight container.

As always this is a contribution, be it late to the foodie blogger party, Fiesta Friday
