    from "The New Basics Cookbook" by Julee Rosso and Sheila Lukins

    These make a great gift, and they're quick to prepare, so make some for yourself too. Always keep the batches to this size. The nuts need plenty of tossing and drying room.

    Makes 2 cups

    1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
    1/2 teaspoon chili powder
    1/2 teaspoon curry powder
    1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
    1/4 teaspoons cayenne pepper
    1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
    1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    2 tablespoons olive oil
    2 cups shelled whole almonds or pecan halves
    1 tablespoon coarse (kosher) salt (optional)
    Garlic salt (optional)

    1. Preheat the oven to 325°F.
    2. Mix the cumin, chili powder, curry powder, garlic salt, cayenne, ginger, and cinnamon in a bowl. Set aside.
    3. Heat the oil in a nonstick skillet over low heat. Add the spice mixture and stir well. Simmer to mellow the flavors, 3 or 4 minutes.
    4. Place the nuts in a mixing bowl, add the spice mixture, and toss well. Spread the nuts in a single layer on a baking sheet. Bake for 15 minutes, shaking the pan once or twice.
    5. Remove the baking sheet from the oven, and using a rubber spatula, toss the nuts with any spices and oil that have accumulated on the bottom of the pan. Sprinkle with the coarse salt, and a bit more garlic salt if desired. Let rest for 2 hours in a cool place. Store in airtight jars.
