Tips for roasting cashews
- Ensure that the cashews are fully coated in the honey mixture. That way they will brown and caramelize all over, and every bite will be delicious!
- Place the cashews in a single layer on your baking sheet. If they are piled on top of each other, they won’t roast evenly.
- Let them cool before storing. Once you take the cashews out of the oven, let them sit, undisturbed for at least 30 minutes. This will allow the honey to solidify.
- Add more seasonings. These honey roasted cashews are delicious as they are, but feel free to add a little cayenne to make them sweet and spicy, or some salt for a more savory edge.
