Sweet & Spicy Nuts (at http://megsvegrecipes.blogspot.com/
2 1/2 C almonds
1/4 C sugar
1 1/2 tsp coarse salt
1 tsp cayenne pepper
Preheat oven to 350 F then spread the almonds on a baking sheet and toast for about 10 minutes. Combine sugar, salt, and cayenne in a large skillet and melt over medium-low heat. Stir the mixture and be sure to keep the sugar from burning. Once the sugar has melted toss in the almonds and make sure they all get coated. Let the nuts cool completely in a single layer on a baking sheet then store in an airtight container. They should keep for 2 weeks.
