Honey Sriracha Peanuts

By Sue Lau | Palatable Pastime

My recipe of the day is for Honey Sriracha peanuts, which is with the group Improv Cooking Challenge. Each month, food bloggers in the group are given two ingredients and need to combine them into a single recipe. For this month, the challenge was for honey and nuts.

I have often enjoyed buying really spicy blends of peanuts, but invariably they seem to charge too much. So I took a plain jar of roasted peanuts and worked my magic on them, using one of the known techniques for adding lots of flavor to nuts without making them any oilier than they already are (they are chock full of peanut oil).

I balanced the heat so they would be just the right amount of sweet and heat. These make perfect food gifts. If you keep them a bit the honey can make them seem a little tacky, from the humidity in the air, but if you store them in the jar the peanuts came in, just give the jar a sharp rap to loosen them up.

These are perfect for parties and setting out when friends are over for a drink. I also like that they don't make your fingers feel oily, the way Spanish peanuts with skins can. Plus, not much of the spice comes off on your fingers, but do make sure to wash your hands after just in case, before you accidentally rub your eyes. (Boy don't I sound just like my mother?!?!?)
