If you want to give something more personal, especially to friends and staff at the office, consider roasting your own collection of mixed nuts packed into a glass jar with a red ribbon on it. I usually keep a mix of roasted almonds, macadamia nuts, and pecans lightly salted on hand. I follow the recipe in The Garden of Eating by Rachel and Don, which consists of spreading the nuts in one layer on a cookie sheet and pop in the oven for about 10 to 15 min at 350-degree F. Then place in a bowl, sprinkle with a little bit of celtic salt (I also sometimes sprinkle on dried dulse as well) and after cooling I pack them into glass jars. Your friends will thank you!
