Roast equal portions of almonds, cashews, pecans, brazil nuts and sunflower seeds (total 6 cups) for 10 minutes at 180 C. In a large pan, bring the following to a boil: 1/3 cup maple syrup, 1/3 cup water, 3 Tb light oil. Add nut mix and cook until all liquid is gone, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and mix thoroughly with 1/4 cup fine white sugar and 2 tsp salt. Spread out on baking sheet to cool.
The kids like this sweet and salty nut/seed mix, and it’s great for triggering the “I want a beer” response in adults!
