Makes 8 x 30g portions



Heat oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4. Line a baking tray with lightly oiled baking parchment. Mix the sugar and salt in a large bowl and set aside.

Melt the honey in a frying pan over a low heat. Add the almonds and spices and stir to coat. Transfer the nuts to the baking tray and spread them out in a single layer. Bake for 10-15 mins until golden brown, scraping the nuts from the side to the centre from time to time so they cook and colour evenly.

Remove from the oven and cool slightly for 5 mins until the nuts become sticky, then toss them in the sugar and salt mixture. Cool completely, then divide them between cellophane bags.
