Candied Spiced Mixed Nuts Recipe
- 2 teaspoons CRISCO® All-Vegetable Oil
- 8 cups salted mixed nuts
- 1 1/3 cups SMUCKER'S® Strawberry Jelly
- 4 tablespoons paprika
- 4 teaspoons cumin
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 2 teaspoons paprika
- 2 teaspoons cumin
step 1: Combine oil and nuts in a medium bowl; set aside.
step 2: In a small saucepan, melt SMUCKER'S(R) jelly over medium heat. Add paprika and cumin. Cook the mixture to the hard ball stage, 260 degrees F measured on a candy thermometer (or you can test for the hard ball stage by dropping a teaspoon of the mixture into a glass of iced water; the mixture will harden instantly if it has reached the proper temperature).
step 3: Immediately pour the mixture over the nuts. Stir with a wooden spoon to evenly coat the nut mixture. Cool for five minutes. Combine brown sugar, paprika and cumin in a small bowl. Once cool enough to handle, sprinkle nuts with the brown sugar mixture. Stir to combine.
step 4: Let cool completely, then pack into decorative, airtight tins.
