  • 1 tbsp granulated sugar
  • 1 tbsp hot water
  • 2 tsps soy sauce
  • 4 garlic cloves, very thinly sliced
  • 2 cups salted roasted cashews, skinned and split lengthwise
  • 1 tbsp coarsely grated fresh ginger, squeezed dry
  • 2 tsps crushed red pepper
  • 1 tsp grated lime zest
  • 2 tbsps raw sugar
  • salt

Preheat the oven to 325ºF. Lightly oil a large baking sheet. In a small bowl, dissolve the granulated sugar in the hot water. Stir in 1 teaspoon of the soy sauce.

In a saucepan of boiling water, blanch the garlic for 10 seconds. Drain and pat dry. Transfer the garlic to a bowl. Add the remaining 1 teaspoon of soy sauce and the cashews, ginger, red pepper and lime zest and toss well. Then toss with the soy syrup. Add the raw sugar; toss again.

Spread the nuts on the prepared baking sheet. Season with salt. Bake for 25 minutes, or until bubbling and golden. Let cool until warm but still pliable. Using a metal spatula, loosen the nuts from the baking sheet; let cool completely.
