Roasted Cashews

2 cups whole cashews
Nonstick skillet
Place cashews in a nonstick skillet and roast
over medium heat. Once nuts start to darken,
lower heat and continue to roast stirring often
until they have a slightly burnt aroma and turn
as dark as you prefer. The cooking time is very
quick only taking a few minutes. These are an
excellent, healthy and quick treat to put out for
your guests at any special gathering, party or
event! They are perfect tossed on a salad too!
You may prefer to use salted or non-salted
cashews, this recipe works well with both.
You do not need to use oil, the natural oil
in the nuts will help them to roast perfectly.
You can also add a pinch of your favorite 
spice or seasoning towards the end of the
roasting if desired, such as; cinnamon,
dried rosemary, black pepper, cayenne
pepper etc. Once nuts are completely
cooled, store leftovers in an air-tight
container. Happy snacking!
