Yield

Serves 10 (serving size: about 16 almonds)

Spiced nuts are usually baked; this stovetop version speeds up the process. The smoky-spicy snack will store well in an airtight container for several days.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups raw, unblanched almonds
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground chipotle chile powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Break apart any clusters.
