  • 1 cup whole cashews
  • 1 cup whole almonds, toasted*
  • 1 cup pecan halves, toasted*
  • 1 cup hazelnuts, toasted and skins removed*
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper


  1. Place nuts in a 2- to 3-1/2-quart slow cooker. In a small bowl combine sugar, butter, ginger, salt, cinnamon, cloves, and cayenne pepper. Add nuts to slow cooker; toss to coat.
  2. Cover and cook on low-heat setting for 2 hours, stirring after 1 hour. Stir nuts again. Spread in a single layer on buttered foil; let cool for at least 1 hour. (Nuts may appear soft after cooking but will crisp upon cooling.) Store in a tightly covered container at room temperature for up to 3 weeks.


  • *To toast nuts: Spread nuts in a single layer in a shallow baking pan. Bake in a 350 degrees F oven for 10 to 15 minutes or until light golden brown, watching carefully and stirring once or twice. To remove the papery skin from hazelnuts, rub the nuts with a clean dish towel.
