    Spiced Christmas Nuts

    Making your own spiced and toasted nuts is absurdly easy, and they're great to eat. This quantity makes a generous bagful, or you could fill two or three smaller, clear bags, tying them with ribbon or string. Quantities can easily be doubled or tripled but if you do, use a larger frying pan so the nuts toast evenly.
