Title: My 2nd try at nuts
Post by: rnmac on June 21, 2018, 10:58:00 am
Last sunday I tried a few more nuts and this is what I got.

Smoked Cashews
1.13   Kg.   Kirkland Roasted Whole Unsalted Cashews
3   T.   Sea Salt
3   T.   Brown Sugar, Packed
2   T.   Chipotle Powder
¼   C.   Jack Daniels/Maple Syrup   2 T. each

Grind salt in a spice grinder till fine.
Add remaining dry ingredients and grind till well mixed.
In a large bowl toss nuts with the J.D. till well moistened.
Then toss with the spice mix.
I placed them on 2 racks.
Covered rack with single layer of cheesecloth
then placed magic mat on it.
Gave them 2 hours & 30” @ 220 with apple pucks.
After they cooled I vacuum sealed them.
Got 8 bags with about 1 cup in each.

When they were first out of the smoker it was hard not to eat every last 1 of them.
Sunday I will be giving them another try. After a week of blooming I'm afraid
I might become a fully bloomed addict!
