Roasted Cashews with Maple Syrup and Sesame Seeds

Ingredients
2 cups raw cashews
4 Tbsp sesame seeds (mixture of white and black)
Few sprinkles sea salt
1/2 cup maple syrup 
 
Place the raw cashews, maple syrup in a bowl. After that, take the black and white sesame seeds and sprinkle them into the bowl as well. Then, mix the ingredients in the bowl and make sure that each cashew is fully coated with a decent amount of sesame seeds. Place a piece of parchment paper on a sheet pan and spread the cashews on the pan so they are not on top of one another. Once they are on the pan you may add more sesame seeds if you wish. Put the pan of cashews in the oven at 350 degrees until they look toasted. Toss the cashews around and bake for for a few more minutes. Once the cashews are out of the oven, sprinkle on a little bit of sea salt and let cool.

Trail Conditions

Greetings skiers;
 
Following is a preliminary grooming report that will actually be in effect tomorrow evening.  We are holding off grooming until Friday evening so that we have good conditions for the weekend.  However, I wanted to get this grooming report out now so that it is clear to interested parties that we are groomed and ready to go.  I have seen a great deal of interest in the fact that only Northeastern Minnesota has good ski and snowmobile conditions.  I expect to see quite a few skiers here this weekend (and hikers too).
 
In addition, the Pisten Bully is again up and running with thanks to Greg Olsen for the quick turnaround and excellent welding job.  As usual Charlie Curry made himself available for the job of pulling the broken stinger off of the PB and working to reassemble the unit.  Final tests today show that hydraulics are working and Charlie will be out tomorrow evening for the groom.
 
Here is the report:
 
Current Base:  15 inches
 
New Snow:  None
 
Spring skiing at Pincushion is very good right now.  Trail conditions can be variable based on exposure to the sun and temperature, but all trails are classic tracked and the skate deck has been tilled, compacted and combed.  This weekend will be some of the best spring skiing in a while with temperatures staying on the cooler side.
 
See you on the trails,
