Spicy Walnuts Gorp
    I have tried this recipe with regular sugar, granular sugar substitute and coarse brown sugar (e.g. Sugar in the Raw), all with good results. Fresh egg white works better than the kind that comes in a carton.

1 egg white
½ teaspoon orange extract
1/3 cup sugar
2 teaspoons apple pie spice or pumpkin pie spice
4 cups walnut halves
8 cups plain popcorn or unsweetened square corn cereal

    Set the oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking pan with parchment or nonstick foil. Whisk egg white with orange extract until light. Whisk in sugar and spice. Fold in walnuts to coat well. Spread on baking pan in a single layer and bake 10 minutes. Stir and bake 20 to 25 minutes more or until nuts are dry. 
    Cool completely and toss lightly with popcorn or cereal. Serve in a big bowl or package for the pocket. Makes 12 one-cup portions.  Keep in a cool, dry place. Add a crisp apple, and this gorp makes a complete meal.
