1 large egg white
2 tablespoons honey
1 tablespoon sesame seeds
4 teaspoons dried rubbed sage
3/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon cayenne
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 3/4 cups salted peanuts
1 3/4 cups pecan halves
1 cup pine nuts


1. Preheat oven to 300°. In a small bowl, whisk egg white until frothy; whisk in honey, sesame seeds, sage, cinnamon, cayenne, and salt. Add nuts and stir. Divide mixture between 2 large nonstick or parchment-lined baking pans and spread into an even layer.

2. Bake, stirring often with a wide spatula, until nuts are golden and fragrant, 20 to 25 minutes. To prevent sticking, turn mixture often with spatula as it cools. Serve warm or cool.
