I share the recipe ingredients and process in the video, but realized it would be good to clarify everything by writing it down!
Preheat oven to 300.
6 cups of nuts…your choice on the combination or all of one kind! (pecans seem to be the fave for the single nut choice!)
2/3 cup REAL maple syrup…NO Log Cabin!
4 tablespoons…which is 1/4 cup…olive oil
2 generous tablespoons of Italian seasoning blend (I say 2 teaspoons at first, then 2 tablespoons…it’s tablespoons!)
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper or more for heat lovers!
1 teaspoon salt (forgot to mention that in the video…sorry!)
Pour syrup mixture over the nuts and stir well to coat, then pour the nuts onto a parchment lined baking sheet.
Bake for 15 minutes, stir the mixture on the pan, bake 15 minutes longer, stir again and add time until the syrup has evaporated, thickened and coated the nuts…usually anywhere from 35 – 45 minutes total baking time.
Remove from the oven and carefully lift the parchment paper onto a cooling rack…wait about 5 – 10 minutes, then pour the nuts onto another…cool, not the warm one…baking sheet and let cool completely.
Be careful, they are ADDICTIVE!

Thanks! I look forward to trying it!
Mary Jane Hislip Mitchell you won’t be sorry!
I can’t wait to make this Liz! I might even do it today. I just received a care package of fresh nuts from my friends that are almond/walnut farmers in CA.
