Spiced Nuts

Kay & Carl Depew


8  cups large pecans (halves)
2 egg white (I use jumbo)
2 T water
cup sugar

1/2 t nutmeg (ground)
2 tsp. cinnamon
1 1/2 t salt
1/4 t ground cloves


Beat one egg white until foamy. Add water and beat to soft peaks. Add nuts and stir until coated.

In a separate bowl, combine sugar, cinnamon, salt, nutmeg and cloves. Pour dry ingredients over nuts and toss gently to cover.

Spread on a cookie sheet and bake @ 300º for 30 minutes, stirring often. Remove and place on waxed paper to cool.
