Fall is right around the corner, although with the sudden influx of pumpkin recipes and Halloween decorations everywhere you’d think it was already here. When does it feel like fall to you? What comes to mind? Is it Starbucks’ reminder that pumpkin spice lattes are back for the season? Is it the changing of leaves or the fact that school is back in session?
As for me, I think of the Ohio Renaissance Festival that my family has visited off and on over the years. I don’t partake in the oversized turkey legs or the mead, but what does draw me in every time is the sugared and spiced nuts: light, crispy, and sugary. Richly scented, I think they’re the perfect taste of the cooler months and the start of the holiday season. I like them best warm, but they make a great snack even after they’ve cooled and are always a hit during the holidays, too!Print

That sounds pretty good. I like eating nuts as long as they are flavored. Boston baked are a favorite.
