Nice combination of sweetness and saltiness. At home on a cheese plate, sprinkled on ice cream, in a salad, or just as they are. Easy and quick to make. Makes a great gift.


RUM-GLAZED SPICED PECANS

Recipe adapted from "Party Nuts!"

Makes 2 cups.

Nuts:
2 cups pecan halves

Spice mix:
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
1/4 teaspoon ground allspice

Rum glaze:
2 tablespoons dark rum
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 teaspoon brown sugar
1 teaspoon unsalted butter

To toast nuts: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spread nuts in single layer on rimmed baking sheet. Toast in oven, stirring once or twice, for 8 to 10 minutes or until light golden brown.

To season nuts: Line another baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside. In small bowl, combine sugar, salt, cinnamon, cloves and allspice. Set aside. In medium-size saucepan, combine rum, vanilla, brown sugar and butter. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Add pecans. Cook for 1 minute or until well coated and pan is almost dry. Spoon spice mix over nuts. Stir until well coated. Transfer pecans to lined baking sheet. Separate nuts with hands or fork. To dry completely, let rest for 1 hour or overnight.
