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.

Bag, tag and gift it.
