Adjust oven rack to middle position and heat oven to 300°.  Line a baking sheet with parchment.

In a large bowl, whisk egg white and water. In another bowl, combine sugar, salt, and spices.

Toss nuts in egg white and water. Scoop out nuts from egg white mixture leaving any excess behind. Toss drained nuts in sugar-spice mixture.  Spread nuts out in a single layer on prepared baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes. Rotate baking sheet, stir nuts, and bake until dry and crisp, for another 20-25 minutes. Cool completely, break nuts apart, and store in an airtight container.
