Aunty’s Five Spice Roasted Almonds
2 cups raw almonds
2 tsp. olive oil
1 tsp. Aunty’s Five Spice (or to your preference)
3/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. ground cayenne
3/4 tsp. sugar
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a large bowl, toss the almonds with the olive oil. Spread almonds out on a sheet pan in a single layer. (Keep the mixing bowl handy – you will need it again.) While oven heats, mix the spices, salt, and sugar in a small bowl; set aside.
Bake almonds in a preheated 350-degree oven for 10 minutes. Remove pan from oven and carefully pour the hot almonds back into the mixing bowl. Sprinkle spices over the nuts and toss well with a spoon. Pour the seasoned almonds back onto the sheet pan and return to the oven for 5 minutes. Remove from oven and let nuts cool completely on pan. Store cooled nuts in a covered container.
