These nuts have great flavor. I had read from some people that they were too salty, so we did slightly less salt. I like the taste because they have the savory flavor of rosemary and thyme and cayenne but they're also a tiny bit sweet from the brown sugar. We did 1/2 pecans and 1/2 almonds (we didn't have enough pecans) and they both turned out great. We ended up baking them a little before seasoning and a little bit after.
