Creative Share

 Hey Hey.

How was Wednesday for you?

Mine was well pretty great. Work. and Church. Good stuff. and Im blessed with another day. OH AND it’s one day closer to seeing my family. YES! 

I haven’t posted a creative share recipe in a good couple of months, so I have one for you tonight!!!

A really simple & QUICK recipe

CANDIED CASHEWS

Do you love cashews? I do!

and I’m just saying, but CHRISTMAS will be here before we know it and these would make great gifts!

INGREDIENTS

2 cups raw unsalted cashews

1 cup sugar

1 1/2 cups water

1 teaspoon kosher salt

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon ground ginger

1/4 teaspoon ground cardamom 

DIRECTIONS

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.  Put the nuts, sugar, water, and salt into a large skillet over high heat. Bring the mixture to a boil, stirring frequently, and cook until the water is nearly evaporated and the liquid becomes syrupy, about 10 minutes. Meanwhile, mix the spices together in a small bowl. After ten minutes, sprinkle the spices over the nuts and stir well. Continue stirring constantly while the water evaporates completely, about five minutes. When there is no longer any sugar syrup left in the bottom of the pan, turn off the heat and stir the nuts vigorously but carefully in the pan until the sugar seizes up and the nuts are evenly coated with crystallized sugar. Turn the nuts out onto the lined baking sheet and spread into an even layer. Cool completely before sifting the excess sugar from the coated nuts and storing in an airtight container.  DO NOT touch the nuts at any time while cooking or just afterward. That stuff will ABSOLUTELY Burn Burn Burn you!!

Cant wait to give these a try and most likely will be adding them to this years Holiday to do list!

Well HAPPY END OF WEDNESDAY my friend. I’m ready for my bed.

Tootles for now
