I love the sound of those spiced nuts in jars that have been mentioned - does anyone know where I can find a good recipe please??
Here is a spiced nuts recipe that I use:


1 egg white
2 tablespoons cold water
2/3 cup walnut halves
2/3 cup pecan halves
2/3 cup whole almonds
1/2 cup sugar (you can substitute Splenda for baking)
1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ginger
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg

Directions
1.Beat egg white and water until frothy. Stir nuts into mixture to coat, then drain slightly in a colander, 3-4 minutes. Mix sugar and spices in a plastic bag. Add nuts and shake to coat. Spread wet nut mixture in a single layer on a microwave-safe plate; microwave on high for 1 1/2 minutes, or until mixture is bubbly. Stir.
2.Microwave another 1 1/2 minutes. Remove; stir to separate. Cool. Store in a sealed container.
