Maple Roasted Nuts with Mixed Herbs!

“This is a great snack to put out at the start of a casual gathering. A mix of nuts is candied with maple syrup and fall-friendly herbs, with delicious salty-sweet results. Be sure to make these at least 90 minutes ahead and let them cool before serving, so they become nicely crunchy.” — Eric Prum and Josh Williams

  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1 pinch of cayenne pepper
  • 2 cups mixed nuts (pecans, walnuts, almonds or whichever other nuts you like)
  • Flaky sea salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 1 teaspoon finely chopped thyme
  • 1 teaspoon finely chopped rosemary
  • 1 teaspoon finely chopped sage


  1. Preheat the oven to 325 F. In a medium bowl, combine the melted butter, maple syrup and cayenne pepper and stir. Add the mixed nuts and toss.
  2. On a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, spread the nuts evenly. Bake for 20 minutes or until most of the liquid has evaporated.
  3. Remove from the oven, season with salt and pepper and sprinkle evenly with the herbs, stirring to coat.
  4. Let the nuts cool for at least 1 hour, and then serve.
