At first when I made these I was a bit disappointed that they were a bit oily after preparing them, but after sitting for a few days the oil has been absorbed into the nuts and they are much better.<br/>The spicing on these is delicious and excellent and makes a very nice batch of spicy peanuts---just make them a few days ahead of time for best results.
