Expert Tips

Toast nuts in a 350°F oven about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until golden brown. Or, sprinkle nuts in an ungreased heavy skillet. Cook over medium-low heat 5 to 7 minutes, stirring frequently, until browning begins, then stir constantly until golden brown. Watch carefully, time varies greatly between gas and electric cooktops.
