Candied Spiced Mixed Nuts

admin 24/04/20 Recipes


3 1/2 cups

Prep Time


Cook Time



2 teaspoons: CRISCO® All-Vegetable Oil

8 cups: salted mixed nuts

1 1/3 cups: SMUCKER'S® Strawberry Jelly

4 tablespoons: paprika

4 teaspoons: cumin


1 cup: brown sugar

2 teaspoons: paprika

2 teaspoons: cumin


Combine oil and nuts in a medium bowl; set aside.

In a small saucepan, melt SMUCKER'S® jelly over medium heat. Add paprika and cumin. Cook the mixture to the hard ball stage, 260 degrees F measured on a candy thermometer (or you can test for the hard ball stage by dropping a teaspoon of the mixture into a glass of iced water; the mixture will harden instantly if it has reached the proper temperature).

Immediately pour the mixture over the nuts. Stir with a wooden spoon to evenly coat the nut mixture. Cool for five minutes. Combine brown sugar, paprika and cumin in a small bowl. Once cool enough to handle, sprinkle nuts with the brown sugar mixture. Stir to combine.

Let cool completely, then pack into decorative, airtight tins.
