      How to Toast Nuts

      Whenever you use nuts in anything you should always toast them. A quick bake brings out some much flavor in any nut and enhances the texture too!
      • Preheat oven to 350F/175C
      • Arrange nuts on a baking tray
      • Bake for about 5 minutes, remove from oven and mix around on tray. Nuts close to the edge of pan will brown and then burn first.
      • Bake an additional 5 minutes or until most nits darken in color a bit.
