I've always been nuts for nuts.  They are the perfect snack.  Satiating a rumbling belly in no time flat.  One of my go-to favorites is toasted almonds and plump raisins sprinkled with Himalayan sea salt that I discovered here.  And just the other day, I made a quick aperitif pairing of Rosemary Cashews.  Beware, whatever bowls you might fill with these nibbles will be empty before you know it.

1 pound roasted unsalted cashews
2 tablespoons minced fresh rosemary 
2 teaspoons light brown sugar
1 tablespoon sea salt
1 - 1 1/2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  
Spread the cashews out on a sheet pan.  Toast in the oven until warm, about 5 minutes.
In a large bowl, combine the rosemary, sugar, salt, and butter.  
Toss the warm cashews with butter mixture and serve warm.

  14. Hi Mel! How great these would be with cocktails or even as gifts. I definitely will be trying these as I have a big rosemary plant right off my kitchen door. Hope all is very well in wonderful California. I'm really looking forward to being one of your guest bloggers in June.

    Cheers xx Deb

  15. MMmmmmm . . . the perfect snack! I make similar ones that also have a dash of cayenne. I often give them as Christmas gifts. Your photo is making me hungry, which is not good as it's 1:00 am here! :D
