1 lb. raw unpeeled almonds
4 tbsp. butter
1⁄4 cup brown sugar
1 tbsp. curry powder
1 (1⁄2″) piece ginger, peeled and grated
1⁄4 tsp. cayenne
Kosher salt, to taste
Heat oven to 350°. Spread almonds on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet; cook until heated through, about 5 minutes; set aside. Heat butter, brown sugar, curry powder, ginger, and cayenne in a 2-qt. saucepan over medium heat; cook, stirring, until sugar is dissolved, about 5 minutes; pour glaze over nuts, stirring to coat evenly, return to oven and cook until slightly dry, about 15 minutes more. Sprinkle with salt and let cool before serving.
1 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
2 teaspoons garlic salt
1 teaspoon curry powder
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
2 tablespoons honey
2 tablespoons butter
1 pound raw pecan halves
Preheat oven to 250° F and line large rimmed baking sheet with foil.
Mix onion powder, garlic salt, curry powder and cayenne in small bowl. (Because I don’t use onion powder much, I needed to break it up with a small fork.)
Melt butter and honey in a saucepan over medium heat. Add pecan halves, stir to cover all the nuts with butter/honey mixture. Remove from heat.
Add spice mixture and toss to coat evenly. Spread pecans in single layer on the foil-covered baking sheet.
Bake pecans until dry and toasty, about 40 minutes. Take off of pan and cool completely on waxed paper. Separate the pecans. This mixture stores for up to 1 week.
