How to make it

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line a jelly roll pan with a sheet of aluminum foil and set aside. Place the butter vinegar tobasco sauce cayenne pepper garlic salt and slat in a medium -size heavy saucepan over medium heat and stir until the butter has melted and the seasonings are well incorporated. Add the cashews and toss until they are well coated with the mixture. Pour the nuts onto the prepared baking pan and spread so that they are in a single layer. Bake the nuts until dark golden brown 10 to 15 minutes. Check the nuts after 10 minutes to make certain they are not browning too quickly. When the nuts are done remove them from the oven and cool for 5 minutes. Scrape the nuts and any dried seasonings on the bottom of the pan into a mixing bowl Toss well. Serve the nuts warm or at room temperature. (Nuts may be made several days in advance and stored in glass jars or other airtight containers. Just the thing for football game days or other sports days.) As A Variation: In addition to serving the cashews as an appetizer package them in decorative glass jars or tins and give them as presents to good friends.

    I was just browsing recipes and staggered upon these. I was firstly interested as I like cashews, but the idea of giving them as a gift in a fancy jar sounds just great. Sounds like I have also found something for my brothers birthday. Thanks

    Hi BettyBoop, this looks great! I love cashews and spicy snacks like this but I've never tried roasting nuts myself and would never have thought of putting vinegar to them! I will keep this recipe to try. Please forgive me, an ignorant British (Scottish) person, if I ask what do 'Tailgating' and 'Tail Gate Party' mean?
    Thanks ever so much, I love your recipes, I am fascinated by Cajun cooking.
    Yours, Nellie (Susan)

    Wow, vinegar, too? What an unusual recipe for these cashews, BettyBoop! These sound just great! I haven't made a recipe like this using tabasco sauce so this should fun to try. I love the "heat" you added in this recipe and look forward to making a batch or two soon! Thanks so much for your recipe!
