Great Demonstration Day at Williams Sonoma! June 13 2016, 0 Comments

What a terrific day we had at Williams Sonoma at the Natick Collection this past Saturday 6/11. We met many new customers and were lucky enough to be asked to return for a future demonstration (coming soon).

We shared Memphis Pulled Pork, smoked and crock pot; Lemon Lime Chicken, Tres Amigo's grilled pork tenderloin, and Chipotle Maple candied pecans. The pecans were the big "sellers" on the day, but we went through a lot of pulled pork! Hope to see you at our next outing.

Smokey and Sweet Nuts
Made with Chipotle Maple Rub

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

Pam a foil lined baking sheet. Or you could use parchment paper and not use spray.
In a large mixing bowl combine:

1 cup raw cashews (5 oz.)
2 cups whole almonds (10 oz.)
4 cups halved pecans (16 oz.)
Stir in ¼ cup maple syrup (real is better).
Sprinkle in 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
Grind in ¼ teaspoon pepper (we use a 4 pepper version)
Add 1 TBs + 1 tsp REAL LiFE RUBS’ Chipotle Maple Rub

Combine ingredients making sure maple syrup coats the nuts, and the rub is fully distributed. Spread onto baking sheet then bake at 425 degrees on the middle rack for 18-20 minutes. Pull halfway through and stir.

Note: The type of nuts you use can be changed as desired, pumpkin seeds and/or sunflower seeds can be added to the mix as well.
Serve at room temperature.
