If this isn’t your year to host the holidays and are lucky enough to be a guest, maybe you’re in need of a hostess/host gift idea. This is an easy and healthier version of glazed nuts, using maple syrup or honey as a substitute for granulated sugar.
Turmeric, a plant that’s part of the ginger family, has curcumin as the main active ingredient. Turmeric has significant health benefits ranging from anti-inflammatory properties to providing antioxidants. Research shows that the curcumin is better absorbed by the body with the addition of black pepper. The muted yellow color of the turmeric can stain, so I recommend using gloves or a spatula when packaging the nuts. Don’t let this deter you from trying this addicting treat. Enjoy the holidays!
