Homemade holiday treats – chilli lime nut mix

It is day 3 of my homemade holiday treats series and I am pleased to report that we are still going strong. holidaytreats And, although I am loving all the sweet treats that are slowly filling my fridge, I couldn’t resist throwing in a ‘savoury’ treat which happens to also be one of my favourite ‘nibbles’. Spiced nuts. Or in particular… chilli A chilli lime nut mix! IMG_3985 Which really are just nuts… IMG_3986 Tamari, honey, lime zest and chilli… IMG_3990 Roasted… IMG_3992 And voila! IMG_3999 Simple to make, but guaranteed to be gobbled up in no time at all. IMG_4000 My version ended up a little sticky, so I will hold off providing a specific recipe at this stage. It still needs some more tweaking, but I am sure to have one for you in the not too distant future. IMG_4004 The flavours, however, were rather tasty with the freshness of the lime zest and the hint of spice from the chilli. IMG_4001 I think they will make a nice alternative for those who are feeling a little sugar overloaded over the festive season (although these do have an element of sweetness in them owing to the honey!). What about you? Ever made your own nut mix?

  1. Oh I love chilli lime nuts! Please, please, please a recipe. Also, please explain what is Tamari (it's been a loooong day at work, I seem to have lost my communication abilities). 🙂

  2. Ooh! What a great idea! I rarely go for flavoured nuts but these ones really appeal. Possibly because the coating is my default stir fry combination 😛

  3. I adore making spiced nuts, though usually make the Union Square recipe. I simply can't make them for just myself, though, because I have no resistance and end up making myself sick eating them all!

  4. I've attempted wasabi cashews a couple of times for a friend who loves them but whilst yummy they've never been quite right, the nuts go too soft.

  5. I have tried this sort of thing with chickpeas but not with nuts – am waiting until sylvia is a bit older and can handle whole nuts – but I think it is a great gift as savoury ideas are a lot harder to come by – susan at food blogga had a good recipe that I liked if you are looking around. Nice summer photos too!
