    Top tip for making Spiced nuts

    TO GIVE: Put with a trendy piece of kitchen equipment, like a griddle pan, and some flavoured oil. (For flavoured oil: Peel a strip of lemon zest from an unwaxed lemon, twist it around a wooden skewer and push into a small bottle of olive oil. Push in a couple of sprigs of sage and re-seal the bottle.)
