Melt the butter in a large skillet, on med-low heat, carefully adding the brown sugar, orange juice, spices & salt until the sugar has dissolved and everything is well mixed.  Then add the nuts stirring slowly, while coating them with the mixture.

Cook them, continue stirring, for a couple minutes till well coated, then transfer them to the foil lined baking sheet, and bake them for 1hour , carefully stirring them every 15 minutes.

Cool on a rack, with occasional stirring, then when able to seperate them with your hands, and completely cooled, store in air tight container, cookie tin, or glass jar with lid.
