Categories:Ridge's Dishes

sweet and spicy mixed nutsI brought these nuts over to my cousin the other day and let’s just say they did not last long. I will have to say they were quite the hit. Mixed nuts are a great snack but adding in a little extra flavor here and there just spices them up, literally! This batch offers a sweet taste with a little spice that hits you right in the back of the throat a few seconds later. Try experimenting with adding different spices into your batch or even taking some out.
