Don’t Let Those Nuts Burn!

Don’t Let Those Nuts Burn!

Whenever something is burning in a kitchen, nine times out of 10 it’s the nuts. That’s because it is so easy to burn nuts when you cook them. This is bittersweet as nuts are easy to remake, but sadly, they are very expensive.

Two tips to avoid disaster and keep your wallets fat:

1. Roast nuts in the oven. Oven temperatures stay constant and can prevent overheating.
2. When nuts are finished cooking, put them on a different cooking sheet to cool. Even though they are out of the oven, the old cookie sheet remains hot and could burn your perfect concoction post-bake.

Happy Cooking!
