Dave's Garden Cookbook: Microwave Spiced Nuts

Microwave Spiced Nuts

By pebble

Category: Microwave


1/4 cup butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 tablespoons water
3 cups walnut halves


Melt butter in a 4 quart glass casserole dish in the microwave. Stir in the brown sugar, nutmeg, cinnamon and water. Microwave on high for 1 minute. Stir in the nuts so they are well coated. Microwave for 4 to 5 additional minutes on high, stirring every minute. Spread cooked nuts out onto parchment or waxed paper to cool.

Extra Notes:

The original recipe called for pecans, but since walnuts are more readily available here I always just use walnuts.
