Expert Tips

To toast nuts, bake uncovered in an ungreased shallow pan in 350° oven 6 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until golden brown. Or cook in an ungreased heavy skillet over medium-low heat 5 to 7 minutes, stirring frequently until browning begins, then stirring constantly until golden brown.
