Roasted Cashews with Maple Syrup and Sesame Seeds

Ingredients
2 cups raw cashews
4 Tbsp sesame seeds (mixture of white and black)
Few sprinkles sea salt
1/2 cup maple syrup 
 
Place the raw cashews, maple syrup in a bowl. After that, take the black and white sesame seeds and sprinkle them into the bowl as well. Then, mix the ingredients in the bowl and make sure that each cashew is fully coated with a decent amount of sesame seeds. Place a piece of parchment paper on a sheet pan and spread the cashews on the pan so they are not on top of one another. Once they are on the pan you may add more sesame seeds if you wish. Put the pan of cashews in the oven at 350 degrees until they look toasted. Toss the cashews around and bake for for a few more minutes. Once the cashews are out of the oven, sprinkle on a little bit of sea salt and let cool.

Trail Conditions

Firday morning, March 24, 2017

Yes, we’re still skiing…
 
Discussion:  We received 1.5 to 2 inches of new snow at Pincushion mixed in with sleet and rain overnight.  Conditions are soft today, but without the sun we may have a bit more skiing.
 
Grooming Report:  All trails in the system except Ole Hyvaa and Hilfiker had new classic tracks set.  They set amazingly well so classic skiing should be good just now.  The same trails were combed for skating, and again, conditions are remarkably good.  That being said, there are seeps on some trails and during the day today there will be some soft spots.  Everything will freeze tonight making for icy and fast conditions.  Late spring skiing,  so please exercise caution.
 
See you on the trails,
