Spiced Nut Mix

3 tablespoons peanut oil
2/3 cups whole blanched almonds
2/3 cups whole shelled pecans
2/3 cups whole shelled walnuts
1/2 cup sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon 5-spice mix
1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1 tablespoon brown sugar

Heat 3 tablespoons peanut oil in a heavy-bottomed saucepan over medium high heat. Add 2/3 cup each, whole blanched almonds, whole shelled pecans, and whole shelled walnuts.  Toss well to coat with the oil.
Add 1/2 cup sugar to the nuts and stir constantly until the sugar caramelizes and the nuts are golden about 3 minutes.
Remove the nuts from the pan and transfer to a large bowl. Add the 1 1/2 teaspoons salt, 1 teaspoon ground cumin, 1/2 teaspoon 5-spice mix, 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes, and 1 tablespoon brown sugar. Toss until all the nuts are well coated with the seasoning.
