Give these spiced nuts as a gift throughout the fall and winter. If you prefer, substitute walnuts or peanuts for the almonds, pecans or filberts.
Ingredients: 
  • 2 cups whole shelled almonds
  • 1 1/2 cup shelled pecan halves
  • 1 1/2 cup shelled hazelnuts
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1 tablespoon orange zest
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
Method: 
Preheat the oven to 325°F. In a large bowl, combine almonds, pecans, hazelnuts, salt, allspice and orange zest.

In a separate bowl, beat egg whites until soft peaks form; gradually add sugar, beating until thick and cremy, about 1 minute. Add nut mixture and fold together until well-coated. 

Place butter on a rimmed baking sheet and put in the oven to melt. Arrange nut mixture in a single layer in the buttered pan. Bake until nuts are brown, about 30 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes. Cool completely in the pan, then transfer to a covered container to store for up to 2 weeks.
