Monday. Again. Where does the weekend go? Blink of an eye, I tells ya! My sister-in-law informed me of some exciting news this weekend. Anthony Bourdain is coming to Newfoundland! YES, Anthony Bourdain – star of CNN’s foodie/travel show Parts Unknown! It’s one of our favourite shows. Have you ever watched?
I think if I saw Anthony Bourdain in the street, I would have to go up to him and ask for a picture. Would I be one of those people who plays it cool and is like ‘yeah, whatever; he is only a celebrity.’ Nope. Like, when would I ever see him again?! Ha! Listen to me….I’m talking as if I’m actually going to meet him. If you saw a favourite celebrity of yours, how would you react? Now that I’ve got that off my chest, how about some delicious honey roasted peanut clusters??
Raw, Natural Honey
Have you heard of Nude Bee Honey? Nude Bee Honey started in 2010 and has been producing some amazing honey since. It’s raw, natural and unpasteurized. As soon as you open the jar and
dip your finger in dip a spoon in, you’ll know just how good it is. It has a really smooth, velvety mouth feel and truly the best tasting honey that I’ve ever put in my pie hole?
For these Honey Roasted Peanut Clusters, I used Nude Bee’s Wildflower Honey. Though, they do have some other wicked flavours – Buckwheat, Pumpkin and Orange just to name a few.
How to Make Homemade Honey Roasted Peanut Clusters
This recipe is pretty simple to whip up. Basically, heat the honey, butter and cayenne on the stove top for a couple of minutes until the butter melts. Then, pour over your peanuts and sprinkle with salt.
Word to the wise – do not, I repeat, DO NOT touch that hot honey—> I touched the hot honey?
What the heck was I thinking? My gut got the best of me. Weeeeeeeell, let me tell you. The sound that I let out was ungodly. I swear the neighbours heard me. I freaked the fur baby out and everything. So, listen, don’t touch hot honey, ok?
You bake these nuts for about 10 minutes on a parchment paper lined pan. Watch them and check on after 5 minutes because they can burn fast and no one wants burned nuts. No one.
After they’ve baked, you can sprinkle with a touch more salt and let sit for a couple of minutes. Then, place in bowl and stir until cooled. These nuts will naturally stick to each other in little clusters cause of the honey so what you are left with is little bites of goodness.
Whenever you are craving a snack, whip these up; you won’t be disappointed!
Until next time, take care and chit chat again soon?

Honey Roasted Peanut Clusters
- 2 cups unsalted peanuts
- 1/4 cup Nude Bee Wildflower Honey
- 1 tbsp unsalted butter
- 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper -or more, to taste
- 3/4 tsp salt -divided
- In a small, heavy bottomed pop on medium heat melt butter into honey (or, alternatively, melt in a microwave safe bowl for 45-60 seconds). Stir in cayenne pepper.
- Preheat oven to 350F. Place peanuts in a bowl and pour honey/butter mixture over top and stir to combine.
- Spread peanuts out evenly on a parchment lined baking sheet and sprinkle with 1/2 tsp of salt. Bake 5 minutes.
- Carefully remove pan from oven and stir nuts and rotate pan and bake for another 4-5 minutes. Remove from oven and sprinkle with another 1/4 tsp of salt. Let sit a minute or two and then place in a bowl. Stir. You want little clumps of nuts (about 3-5) in a clump (they will naturally stick together). Stir every couple of minutes until cooled slightly, breaking up, as desired. Enjoy!
