  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a shallow baking pan with foil. Spread nuts in an even layer in pan. Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until lightly toasted.

  • Meanwhile, stir together maple syrup, oil, herbs, garlic, and if desired, cayenne. Remove nuts from oven. Pour syrup mixture over; toss well. Bake 10 minutes more, stirring once.

  • Sprinkle with sea salt; stir. Cool completely in pan on a wire rack. Store covered at room temperature up to 5 days. If desired, in a skillet warm over medium-low to serve. Serves 16.


Or toast hazelnuts with skin in a 350°F oven for 7 minutes. Wrap in a kitchen towel and rub to remove skins.
