Spice mixture:

1 T granulated sugar
1 1/2 t kosher salt
1/2 t cayenne
1 t cinnamon
1/4 t allspice
1/4 t ground ginger
1/4 t nutmeg
1/4 t cumin

1 lb raw almonds (blanched is better, but keeping the skins on is OK)
3 T oil (peanut is best, canola is fine)
1/2 c granulated sugar

Mix ingredients for spice mixture in a large bowl. Set aside

Heat 3 T of oil over medium heat in a frying pan large enough to hold the nuts in a single layer.

Add nuts and stir until they toast.

Add 1/2 c granulated sugar to nuts and stir until sugar melts.

Immediately pour the nuts into the spice mixture and stir.

Spread out in a flat pan or on a piece of foil to cool.
