my these almonds are spicy

2 tablespoons peanut oil
2 cups whole almonds
1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 1/2 teaspoons cumin
1 teaspoon red pepper flakes

In a pan warm the oil over medium heat. Add the almonds, and stir, coating each thoroughly with oil. Sprinkle with 1/2 cup sugar, and continue to stir until the almonds become golden brown and the sugar caramelized, about four minutes. Remove from heat. Sprinkle the remaining sugar, salt, cumin, and the red-pepper flakes over the nuts, and toss well. Pour the nuts out in a single layer on a baking sheet lined with waxed paper. Allow nuts to cool.
