Default 10 lbs of salty cashew/almond mixture

I recently "won" this as a prize. I don't want to just sit down and eat them. I want to cook with them...anyone have any favourite recipes?

Maybe use some to make a brittle?

And others to grind up for a cashew/almond butter?

And the rest for a snack while watching tv

p.s. how'd you win them??

My favorite is when you make clusters with nuts but instead of just chocolate, you mix butterscotch in with the chocolate as well...

You can also grind some up and use as a coating for fish or meat. What a great prize!

Wow you are so lucky congratulations thats my kind of prize. If it was me I probably would eat it all right from the bag LOL I have no self control.. I was thinking, how about a home made granola, I love granola bars and it can be eaten as a cereal or over yogurt or just as a snack. I found this recipe online I hope you like it, let us know what you decide to do with all those yummy nuts.

HOME MADE GRANOLA

2 cups rolled oats (not instant)
1 cup peanuts or toasted almonds
1/4 cup sesame seeds
1/2 cup toasted sunflower seeds
1/2 cup coconut (I always use unsweetened, but you can go for the sweetened kind if you'd like)
1/4 cup toasted wheat germ (I often omit this ingredient, as I tend to forget to buy it)
1/2 cup raisins
1/2 cup dried fruit (dried apricots, craisins and dried apple are all delicious choices)
scant 1/4 cup cooking oil (not olive)
1/2 cup honey

Mix the oat, nuts and grains in a large bowl. Measure oil into the measuring cup and swirl it around before pouring into bowl. Then measure out the honey in the same, unwashed cup. The oil will help the honey exit the cup. Toss everything together until evenly coated and then pour out into a baking pan. I use a large roasting pan, as it keeps everything contained. A cookie sheet with a lip also works, but you have to stir it slightly more carefully if you use that. Bake at 300 degrees for 30 minutes, turning it with a spatula every ten minutes or so. You want everything to be an even golden brown. When it is finished cooking, returned the baked granola to the mixing bowl, add the raisins and fruit and stir to combine. Stir gently several times as it cooks, so that it doesn't clump together too much. Enjoy!

I was looking through a vegan cookbook and there was a recipe for a vegan pate using walnuts. Perhaps you can do something similar with your mixture. Maybe also substitute pinenuts and make a pesto of sorts. Have fun and don't od on it!
