I make derivations of this for cocktail parties all the time. They're a good match for strong drinks or beer and good well with hearty cheeses before dinner. This recipe makes enough as an appetizer for a dinner party of 4 or 5 people.

10 oz whole almonds
3 tbsp vegetable oil
1 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp salt
1 tsp cayenne
1 tsp coriander
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp nutmeg

1) Preheat oven to 300 degrees.
2) Toss nuts in oil and then seasonings.
3) Spread on baking sheet in single layer.
4) Roast for 15 to 20 minutes. Keep an eye on them so the sugar doesn't burn.
5) Remove from oven and allow to cool completely before serving.
