Place sugar, water and spice in a non-stick pan; heat over medium-low heat. After a few minutes, the water will start evaporating and the sugar will start to caramelise. Stir in the almonds with a wooden spoon, coating them evenly in the caramel. Cook for about 10 minutes or until the almonds are well coated.
Remove from heat and transfer the almonds to a tray lined with parchment. Spread them evenly on the tray, trying to separate them so they won't stick. Cool completely. Serve right away or store in an airtight jar and consume within 3 to 4 months.
