Toated Nuts

All the recipes I looked up for nuts had weird ingredients (like egg whites) and took a long time, roasting in the oven. Having fried nuts for salads I thought I'd just give this a go and it seemed to work out rather well. I think I could have cooked mine a bit longer so go ahead and taste along the way to check, and you can always throw them back in the pan if they cool and aren't quite as dry and toasty as you like.

This recipe is a little vague, but well worth the "taste-as-you-go" methodology. It's also fairly straight-forward so if the "taste-as-you-go" methodology freaks you out, it's a good start, and if you're already a bit of an experimental cook you should pick this up no prob.

1 tablespoon butter
1 cup raw nuts
Several shakes of powdered spices
(I used cinnamon for one and tumeric for the other)
Several pinches of salt

Melt butter in fry pan over medium heat
Add nuts and mix until nuts coated in butter
Add spices and salt
Taste, add spice and/or salt as you like (does it taste good or does it taste bland?)
Shake and/or mix nuts with fork
Fry for 8 minutes or so, until the nuts start to get less chewy
