Rosemary Roasted Nuts for Father's Day


We usually don’t give large gifts for Father’s Day to great-grandparents and uncles and all the extended family fathers we know. However, this year we’ll be getting together with plenty of extended family to celebrate my husband’s grandfather’s 90th birthday on Father’s Day, and I thought I really should do something for all the dads that will be there.

These rosemary roasted nuts are the perfect answer. They’re quick and easy to prepare, and they make a great gift when packaged in a jar. Looking for a bit more? Add a six-pack of the dad’s favorite beer for the perfect beer-and-nut-themed gift.

Rosemary Roasted Nuts

5 cups raw mixed nuts (I used almonds, hazelnuts, pecans and cashews)
3-4 springs rosemary
3 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
2 teaspoons sea salt
cracked black pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 350°. Stir together nuts, rosemary, olive oil, brown sugar, cayenne, sea salt and black pepper. Spread in a single layer on a cookie sheet. Bake for 20 minutes until nuts are roasted through. Remove from oven and allow to cool completely.

When nuts have cooled, place in jars or store in airtight containers.

Makes 5 cups mixed nuts.
