Spiced Nuts

December 12, 2008

Remember that peanuts are very starchy.  Other nuts contain starch but tree nuts are much better than peanuts.  Eat these in moderation.

2 1/2 cups of tree nuts of your choice (pecans seem to hurt Chris more than walnuts)

2 tablespoons of vegetable oil

1 1/2 tsp ground cumin

1/4 tsp cayenne pepper

2 tablespoons sugar

1 tsp salt

Preheat oven to 300 degrees.  Pour the oil in a heavy saucepan and place over medium-low heat until warm.  Add the cumin and cayenne and stir until the mixture is aromatic, about 15 seconds.  Add the nuts, sugar and salt and stir to coat evenly.  Transfer the nuts to a baking pan.  Bake, stirring occasionally, until the nuts are toasted, about 20 minutes.  Store in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks.

    Thank you!!! Diagnosed with ankylosing spondilitis 3 years ago at age 23 and am in a great deal of pain with medicines not decreasing pain as they used to. JUST found that low starch helps some online and am willing to try anything at this point. Unfortunately, I didn’t know what that left for me to cook for hubby and I…THANK YOU AGAIN, REALLY!!!

      I am so glad these recipes are a help to you. I need to try to add some more. Life is just so busy right now. Chris has had to change his meds over the years as they have lost their effectiveness. When he switched to Low Starch it greatly improved his pain levels.
