  4. Slowly pour sugar mixture over nuts, continuously tossing the cashews with a rubber spatula to evenly coat the nuts with sugar and spices.

Note: To dehydrate your own fresh (likely leftover) sage, we use the Serious Eats method. Pluck individual leaves from stems and place in a single layer between two to four layers of paper towels. Microwave for about 35 seconds, then microwave in 20 second bursts until dry. Use a mortar and pestle to grind.
