We both chose a recipe to try that appealed to us. Cameron chose Cinnamon Roasted Almonds - recipe here. They were amazingly easy to make and taste better than the sweet almonds Cameron usually picks at the market.
I can see these being quite versatile too - they could be crushed and used as toppings for yoghurt, fruit crumbles etc.
I wanted to try something savoury so I went for Cajun Roasted Nuts - recipe here. These were also fairly easy to make but didn't taste quite as I'd imagined because of the strong heather honey I used but they were still pretty tasty!
I read that you can make these in advance and freeze them until you're ready to serve them, which is very handy.
