Sweet and Spicy Nuts



  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees F. In a medium bowl beat egg white and water until frothy. Add nuts and toss to coat. Transfer to a wire mesh sieve; drain nuts for 5 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large plastic bag combine the sugar, salt, cumin, paprika, coriander, cayenne pepper, and ginger. Add the nuts; shake well to coat with the spice mixture. Spread nuts evenly in an ungreased 15x10x1-inch baking pan.
  3. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes until nuts are toasted and spice mixture is dry, stirring every 10 minutes. Remove from oven; transfer to a sheet of foil. Cool completely. Break nuts apart. Store in airtight bag or container at room temperature up to 5 days or freeze up to 3 months. Makes 4 cups (twelve, 1/3 cup servings).
