Spicy Soy Glazed Candied Almonds

I highly recommend this for snacking.

2 c. whole almonds
1/4 c. soy sauce
1/4 c. canola oil
1/4 c. light brown sugar
1 T. cayenne
1 T. garlic powder
2 t. ground dried ginger
Sesame seeds

Mix all ingredients except canola oil and sesame seeds together in saucepan. Add almonds. Bring to a boil and stir frequently until mixture has caramelized and coats/is absorbed into the almonds. Take mixture off heat. stir in the canola oil. Spread mixture onto a greased cookie sheet or sheet of aluminum foil and roast at 250 degrees for ten minutes. Sprinkle with sesame seeds to finish. Allow to cool. Good with cheeseplates or on their own, or maybe over a salad.
