Ginger ‘n’ Honey Sticky Nuts

  Went to an event yesterday to talk to pregnant women about my work as a Doula and I made these to take with me. They were a total hit and oohh soo yum! Let’s get to it.

You’ll need:

  • 250g of Cashew nuts
  • 1tsp sunflower oil
  • 1Tbsp ginger infused honey
  • 1tsp ground ginger

Shall we?

  • Put the nuts in a pan to roast for about 5mins on medium to high heat,
  • Drizzle in the oil when they start to get a bit o’ colour on ’em,
  • Fry for another couple of minutes,
  • Add the honey with the ginger and toss it all around on high heat. Watch your spoon because it’ll begin to get gooey and sticky,
  • Take off the heat once it starts sizzling and all caramelised,
  • Let cool and crunch away!
