For a flavor twist, substitute 5-spice powder, cinnamon or curry powder for the cayenne pepper.

Super Simple Ginger Party Nuts
Ginger-sweet meet salty-spice. A simple go-to recipe for party snacks and gift giving.
- 500g unsalted mixed nuts
- 120g The Ginger People® Uncrystallised Bare Ginger, coarsely chopped
- 30g sesame seeds
- 2 teaspoons coarse salt
- 1/4 teaspoon ground pepper
- 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
- 60ml The Ginger People® Organic Ginger Syrup
- Preheat oven to 175°C. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Combine nuts, Uncrystallised Bare Ginger, sesame seeds, salt, pepper and cayenne in a large bowl.
- Heat Ginger Syrup in small saucepan over medium heat. Pour warm syrup over nut mixture and toss well to evenly coat.
- Arrange nuts on prepared baking sheet.
- Bake until nuts are golden brown, about 15 minutes, stirring 2 or 3 times. Cool completely before breaking into bite size pieces.
These are so delicious. I make several batches every year at holiday time to give as gifts, use as a dessert topping, or enjoy with a cheese tray instead of a sweet.
