Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
My nuts can be enjoyed one at a time or eaten by the handful.

Any type of salt can be used, but popcorn salt is well suited for this recipe if you have it available. For an extra spicy kick, mix 1/4 teaspoon Morton's Hot Salt with 3/4 teaspoon salt and substitute this for the amount listed in the ingredients).

Variation: Substitute walnut or pecan halves, cashews or macadamia nuts in place of the mixed nuts.
