I didn’t think I would have a kitchen tip to post today, but last night I was reminded of one as I was making muffins. Toasting nuts brings out their flavor. It’s easy to do and makes anything you add the nuts to more tasty. If I’m baking something like muffins, I put the nuts in the oven while it’s preheating. Spread them out on a cookie sheet and bake about five to ten minutes. It’s best to toast them whole and chop them afterwards. Chopped nuts will burn quickly. You can also toast them on the stove top in a heavy skillet. Stir them often until they are golden brown and you can smell their nutty fragrance.
