    I am too lazy to go back and read the whole thing again too! But the sugar is from the syrup.
    We just fired up the Maple peanut line today. And granddaughter M said she didn't like the "business" it was too much work!
    I was using some late season dark syrup. It coated the nuts but it was touch and go for a little while as it looked like a gooey PayDay bar!

    I have a question . Some had added salt, and cinnamon to your almonds, I thought all the salt and cin. would end up in one place. Did any of you add this stuff to the syrup for a better mix? And thank you for this post!!!

    we made some last night with 6 oz. to a lb of nuts, we mixed almonds, cashews, and pecans and right before I poured the syrup over nuts, I added a 1/2 t. cinnamon. should have added full teaspoon. but we were going to send them to our kids, one in Cal. on in N.C. along with their syrup. we will have to make another batch, these were going fast last night

    Used the step by step photos to make my first maple roasted nuts : pecans, almonds and peanuts. They were fantastic. I did put them on parchment paper on a cookie sheet after coating in the pan. Roasted for 8 minutes at 350 degrees to crisp them up.

    Job Lot or PriceRite has been where we have been getting our nuts. I had a guy in town ask me to make maple almonds for him to sell at his farm stand. He thinks we could sell them for $6.99/lb seems cheap to me......I suggested small bag quantities for $5.00

    Wow $6.99 a pound is very cheap. I've seen most any coated nuts for around a $1 an ounce snack size.

    I'll be giving this a shot when I get home this evening to bring to dinner with me later on. I've made mostly dark amber but I imagine this will still work for me if i bring it up to 32 deg over boiling water. Guess we'll find out!
