Goodbye Lie's Sugar and Spice Nuts Recipe

      Make your own Sugar & Spice Nuts which are featured in e-book or paperback version of The Goodbye Lie, set on Amelia Island, Florida in 1882 - where Little House on the Prairie meets Gone With The Wind

Turn to page 158 of this romantic period suspense novel to read about the Fort Clinch Dance where these delights are served.  Festive, they make any occasion even more special. 

You'll need:

12 ounces whole pecans (almonds or unsalted walnuts will work, too)

2 cup sugar

1 cup water

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon nutmeg

grated rind of two oranges

pinch of cloves

Mix all the ingredients in a heavy skillet.  Simmer over medium-high heat.  Stir constantly for 5 minutes or until the water evaporates.  Pour the nuts onto 2 cookie sheets treated with non-stick spray.  With a fork, separate them quickly and let cool.  Sugared nuts may be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator or freezer or kept at room temperature about 2 weeks. Odds are they won't last long!
