Orange-Cardamom Spiced Nuts

(Cribbed badly from Cook’s Country)

1 egg white
1 Tbsp orange juice
1 Tbsp orange zest
1/4 tsp vanilla
1 tsp cardamom
1/2 tsp pepper
1 tsp salt
1/2 cup sugar
1 lb nuts (almonds or pistachios work best)
Heat your oven to 300. Coat a large baking sheet with nonstick spray. Whisk together the egg white, juice, zest, vanilla, and salt. Coat the nuts in the mixture, then drain in a colander for 5 minutes. Combine the sugar, cardamom, and pepper. Toss with the nuts, then spread on the baking sheet. Bake 45 minutes, stirring every 10-15 minutes. Cool, continuing to stir every 15-3o minutes. They’ll probably be sticking together and need to be broken apart once cool.
