Bar Nuts from Union Square CafeThese nuts won The New York Press award for “best bar nuts in New York.” Every afternoon at about 4:45, a piping hot batch emerges from the ovens at Union Square Café and is sent out to the bar, where the sweet rosemary fragrance wafts throughout the restaurant. Though they don’t have a television set at they’re bar, these nuts would probably be a hit in your living room accompanied by a football game and some ice-cold beer.

In 1994, the folks from Union Square Café were talking up their new cookbook, The Union Square Café Cookbook: 160 Favorite Recipes from New York’s Acclaimed Restaurant on Good Morning America. They demonstrated how to make these prized nuts. These aren’t just good in the big city, but in the hills and hollers of West Virginia and in My Mid-Century Home!

Ingredients

2 1/2 cups of peeled peanuts, cashews, brazil nuts, hazelnuts, walnuts, pecans, and whole unpeeled almonds (or pick your favorites)
