2 1/2 cups unsalted mixed nuts
1/4 cup finely chopped candied ginger (not crystallized)
1 teaspoon fine sea salt
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon ground cardamom
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 cup pure maple syrup

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Put the nuts, candied ginger, salt, and spices in a medium bowl. Put the maple syrup in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil. Cook 1 minute without stirring. Remove from heat. Pour the syrup over the nut mixture. Toss well to combine. Spread onto the prepared baking sheet in a single layer. Bake until the nuts are golden and fragrant, about 15 to 20 minutes, stirring every 5 to 7 minutes. Cool completely on the pan before breaking into pieces.
