What have we here? Strange to say, it is the leavings at the bottom of a tin of very good honey-roasted mixed nuts from Walgreen’s. Some would call it “gradoo.” It’s detritus, and usually tossed in the garbage.
Now, it might seem ridiculous, but the last time I finished a tin of these nuts, I couldn’t bear to throw away the salty-sweet bits lingering at the bottom. So I saved them, and made a pistachio ice cream sundae one night (pictured below), sprinkling the gradoo on top, after a squirt of chocolate sauce and a few toasted pistachios.
What an inspired idea, if I do say so myself, and someone who wants to start a little food business (and so many do these days), might think about making salty-sweet-crunchy ice cream toppings.
