Author Notes: While other nuts will take on some of the flavours of the core ingredients, soft, flat nuts like Walnuts and Pecans work much better than the harder ones (hazelnuts, almonds etc). This recipe was adapted from horseradish.orgKitchen Butterfly

Makes 1 cup

  • 1 cup walnuts and pecans, raw
  • 1/4 cup dulce de leche
  • 2 teaspoons prepared horseradish
  • 1/2 orange, zested and juiced
  • 1/2 lemon, zested and juiced
  • 1/2 teaspoon (saigon) cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cardamom
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  1. Preheat your oven to 210 deg C. Lightly oil a baking sheet and then set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine the dulce de leche, horseradish, orange and lemon zest and juice, cinnamom, cadamom and a pinch of salt - mix well, taste and adjust seasoning accordingly. The mixture should be loose and slightly runny.
  3. Add nuts to the dulce de leche mix and toss well to coat. Place them on the prepared baking sheet and bake for 10 - 12 minutes, turning occasionally and checking till the nuts are golden brown.
  4. Remove them from the tray and drain on a cooling rack till cold. Store in an airtight container.
