    1. Whisk egg white in a medium bowl until frothy. Mix in cashews until coated. Let soak for 30 minutes.
    2. Preheat oven to 120 C / Gas ½. Line a baking tray with foil.
    3. Combine sugar, cumin, salt and cayenne pepper in a small bowl. Pour over cashews and toss to coat. Spread cashews on the prepared baking tray.
    4. Bake in the preheated oven, stirring halfway through, until fragrant, about 40 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 100 C / Gas ¼. Continue baking, stirring every 20 minutes, until cashews look dry, 30 to 40 minutes.
    5. Transfer cashews to a container and let cool, shaking or stirring occasionally to prevent them from sticking together.


    We usually store our cayenne cashews in plastic containers so that we can shake them while they are cooling. Make sure they cool with the lid off.
