    Directions:

    1. 1
      Blend the sugar, salt, pepper and cinnamon in a bowl.

      Finely grind the star anise, cloves and Szechwan peppercorns in a spice grinder.
    3. 3
      Strain through a fine mesh sieve to eliminate the husks, the combine with the sugar mixture.
    4. 4
      Heat a large heavy skillet, preferably cast iron, over high heat until hot enough to evaporate a bead of water on contact.
    5. 5
      Add the nuts and toss until they are hot to the touch, about a minute.
    6. 6
      Reduce the heat if needed to prevent scorching.

      Sprinkle the nuts with half the seasoning mixture and shak the pan until the sugar melts and turns a dark caramlized brown, about a minute.
    8. 8
      Add the remaining mixture and continue shaking the pan until the sugar melts again and coats the nuts.
    9. 9
      (Do not use a spatula or a spoon for this process because the sugar wil caramelize onto it instead of the nuts.) Immediately turn the nuts onto a foil-lined baking sheet.
    10. 10
      Use yoru fingers to separate the nuts when cool enough to handle, then let them cool completely.
    11. 11
