Festive honey-roasted nuts – Jamie Oliver | Features

“Makes 1kg (2 large jars, 4 medium jars or 6 mini ones)

50g of unsalted butter
2 tbsp of runny honey
2 tsps of sweet smoked paprika
1kg mixed unsalted nuts (cashews, pecans, peanuts, macadamia almonds, hazelnuts, walnuts and Brazil nuts)
2 tsps quality sea salt
Preheat the oven to 180º­C/350ºF. Place a medium pan on a medium heat, add the butter and honey and cook for 3-4 minutes or until the butter has melted.

If using Brazil nuts, roughly chop some of them up into halves and quarters to make them more bite size. Place all the nuts onto two large roasting trays, then carefully divide the melted butter and honey mix between the two, then scatter over the paprika. Toss to coat all the nuts, then cook for 20-30 minutes, or until golden all over, carefully shaking the tray every 10-15 minutes to make sure they cook evenly.”
