Ginger Spice Candied Walnuts

These are just ever so sweet, with a little bit of heat from the cayenne and ginger.  Very tasty and snackable.

Whip 2 egg whites until foamy and soft peaks.

Toss the beaten egg whites with 8 oz walnuts (or pecans) in a large bowl.

Now add:
2 TB brown sugar
1 TB ground ginger powder
1/4 - 1/2 tsp cayenne powder (depends on how spicy the powder is)
pinch salt

Bake 10 minutes at 350 F. Use a spatula to turn the nuts over, bake another 10 minutes.  Let cool.
Store in an airtight container.
