Pretty good. I like the roasted taste. I used unrefined extra virgin olive oil which I don't recommend as it burns. I used sea salt. Made for January's Tag Game ~ Nueces ~ Nuts in the Spain & Portugal forum.

Good spiced nuts. I like a sweet element to spiced nuts and did add a tsp of sugar, as well.

What a fun way to spice up almonds. I eat almonds all the time as my holistic doctor advises and this is a cool way to make them a little less bland. After roasting I let them sit on paper towels and then transferred to tupperware. Thanks Erin.
