At Drink, chef Colin Lynch adds a hit of cayenne to this snack for a little spice. He uses a mix of nuts; if you opt for just one kind, walnuts hold the seasonings especially well.

  1. 2 cups raw cashews
  2. 2 cups raw walnuts
  3. 2 cups raw almonds
  4. 2 tablespoons grapeseed oil
  5. 2 tablespoons finely chopped rosemary
  6. 1 tablespoon dark brown sugar
  7. 2 teaspoons kosher salt
  8. 3/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  9. 1 cup dried cranberries
  1. Preheat the oven to 350°. In a large bowl, toss the cashews, walnuts and almonds with the oil, rosemary, brown sugar, salt and cayenne. Spread on a rimmed baking sheet and bake for about 15 minutes, stirring halfway through baking, until golden. Let the nuts cool completely, then mix with the cranberries and serve.
