Recipe 51 Roasted Nuts Christmas recipe Jamie Oliver

Every year I normally make a food gift for my family, but this year, I didn't get the chance to stand over a hob for a few hours making my normal chutney. With only a little time to spare, I found this recipe from Jamie Oliver which I thought I would give a try.
Makes 1kg (2 large jars, 4 medium jars or 6 mini ones)
50g of unsalted butter
2 tbsp of runny honey
2 tsps of sweet smoked paprika
1kg mixed unsalted nuts (cashews, pecans, peanuts, macadamia almonds, hazelnuts, walnuts and Brazil nuts)
2 tsps quality sea salt

Preheat the oven to 180º­C/350ºF. Place a medium pan on a medium heat, add the butter and honey and cook for 3-4 minutes or until the butter has melted.

If using Brazil nuts, roughly chop some of them up into halves and quarters to make them more bite size. Place all the nuts onto two large roasting trays, then carefully divide the melted butter and honey mix between the two, then scatter over the paprika. Toss to coat all the nuts, then cook for 20-30 minutes, or until golden all over, carefully shaking the tray every 10-15 minutes to make sure they cook evenly.
Season with a little salt and leave to cool. Serve up in a big jar for people to get stuck into, or decant into bowls and serve alongside a glass (or two) of Prosecco.

I used a tray with this recipe, then another which was using cinnamon for another christmas flavour.
