  1. Preheat your oven to 300°F.
  2. Meanwhile, heat oil in a medium saucepan. Once warm, add the berbere, salt and pepper and stir to combine. Let the spices warm and permeate the oil, about 3-5 minutes.
  3. Remove from the heat and add the almonds. Stir well, to coat the almonds with the spiced oil.
  4. Pour the almonds onto a parchment or Silpat lined baking sheet, and roast for 12 minutes.
  5. Remove the almonds and transfer them to a cooling rack to dry. Let dry for at least 2 hours before serving.
