Savory Nut Mix
½ cup pure maple syrup
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 ½ teaspoons dried oregano
1 ½ teaspoons dried thyme
1 ½ cups whole almonds (skin on)
1 ½ cups walnut halves and pieces
1 ½ cups blanched hazelnuts
1 ½ cups pecan halves
Preheat oven to 300*F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper or aluminum foil.
Combine the maple syrup, olive oil, salt, cayenne, oregano and thyme in a medium size bowl and whisk to blend. Add all the nuts and stir to thoroughly coat.
Pour the nut mixture onto the baking sheet and spread the nuts into a single layer. Bake, stirring several times, until the nuts are fragrant and light browned (35-45 minutes). Cool completely before storing at room temperature for up to 3 weeks.
