(10 people)

- 500 g of almonds with their skin (or 250 g almonds 250 g pecans or hazelnuts).
- 4 tbsp caster sugar (roux is more fragrant).
- 1 teaspoon of salt.
- 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper.
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon.
- 1/2 teaspoon curry powder.
- 1/2 teaspoon of turmeric powder.
- 1/2 teaspoon anise beans.

Quickly add the spice mixture and mix again .

Ensure that the spicy caramel does not stick too much to the spoon: it parfumerait the dishwasher or sink, but much less fruit .
When all the fruits are coated, at least in part. turn off heat and let cool .

In fact, you can put the spice of your choice according to your taste, add clou ground cloves for example if you like, or more pepper if you prefer more spicy. With practice, you can season to trial rather than carefully weigh and measure each ingredient. I think a mixture of 5 spices trade must be very well .
