Candied Nuts

This snack-time favorite is inspired by the candied nuts on the menu at one of my favorite places in Providence, Rhode Island, La Laiterie. Chef Matt Jennings won’t reveal his top-secret recipe, so my family was left to trust our palate and attempt to recreate our addictive favorite at home.

This is one of my favorite go-to snacks to serve at 5 p.m. with a glass of bubbly, a cheese platter when entertaining, or simply as a garnish on my morning Greek yogurt parfait or hot oatmeal.

In a sauté pan over medium heat, heat honey until just bubbly. Add the salted nuts and the herbs and toss well to coat. Turn heat to medium-low and let the mixture cook for 2 minutes, tossing continuously. Turn the heat off and let cool, tossing every minute or so as the honey candies the nuts.

Honey Shopping Tip

As an alternative to sugary, salty, processed foods, try shopping for fruits and vegetables that are in season.

Honey Cooking Tip

For a healthier alternative, substitute honey or molasses for sugar in baking recipes, and use a 3:1 blend of canola oil to olive oil instead of butter when cooking over the flame.
