Spicy Pecans
4 tsp       cinnamon
1-1/2 tsp   ginger
3/4 tsp     nutmeg
1/2 tsp     ground cloves
1/2 tsp     ground cayenne
2           egg whites
1/4 cup     raw honey
5 cups      pecan halves (or walnuts)

In small bowl, combine cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, cloves and cayenne. In
large bowl, whisk egg whites until frothy; add honey, whisk again just
until egg whites and honey are combined. Add nuts a cup at a time in the
egg and honey mixture. Remove and toss in the spices. Repeat again until
all the nuts have been coated.

Spread on 2 lightly greased baking sheets; bake at 250 for one hour,
rotating sheets halfway through baking, or until coating is crisp and nuts
are fragrant. Let cool.
