Baked Honey and Mustard Cashews

No matter how much you make them, they will fall short of. They came out so addictive that whenever we passed through this box,  we have to pick some from the box with a vouch that now no more but again came back.
We all know cashew nuts were known for its antioxidants property other than large amount of fats, which is good for children.

I didn’t plan anything, just one day while cleaning my almirah I found them; they were lying with me from the Diwali days. All other nuts received or bought were consumed, leaving alone only these poor err rich nuts.

Now when summer is approaching fast and fearing that  they will get rotten I decided to use them.  Of course, I can keep them in freeze but only,  if there, was any place left after stocking so much (my baking stuff) in my medium size freeze. I take them out thinking I will make salted cashews with them.

Days went by and they lied there waiting to transform themselves into salted one. Some days later I found a post by Jamie and I wait no longer further. At first when they came out of the oven,  as you can see they were all sticky and even some juices were there. I thought they were all spoiled because I can’t bake them more to absorb the juices because they were already browned.  But a little later when they cool down and I rolled them in sugar and pepper powder their stickiness as well as moistness was all gone.
So don’t wait, make and serve them to your guest I am sure you will hear all praises and nothing else.
