These homemade honey-roasted sweet and spicy nuts come with a kick of chilli. Serve them with warming winter cocktails or wrap as festive gifts.

Or, if you’re nuts about honey, try this recipe for honey and pine nut nougat – it’s also great as a gift (if you can stop yourself from eating it all…)

  • Large baking tray lined with compostable baking paper

Method

  1. Heat the oven to 200°C/180°C fan/gas 6. Spread the nuts in a single layer over the prepared tray and roast in the hot oven for 5 minutes.
  2. Remove from the oven, drizzle with honey, scatter over the chilli and season with sea salt flakes and black pepper. Toss to coat well, then return to the oven for 5-10 minutes until golden and roasted to your liking. Set aside to cool.
  3. Once cool, wrap bags of the nuts as gifts, or store in an airtight container.

  1. We used nuts grown in the UK, but choose whatever type you fancy. If you’re making the nuts to give away, wrap in twists of compostable baking paper
    tied with string.

  2. Once roasted and cooled, the nuts will keep in an airtight container for up to a week.
