Roasting your own nuts allows you to impart a variety of flavors. You can easily customize based on your desire for sweet, spicy, or savory. I enjoy roasting nuts as gifts or a great accompaniment to party food.
Full time 25-30 minutes
Makes approximately 4 cups (roughly 14-16 servings)
You will need:
1 1/2 shelled, unsalted, roasted almonds
2 tbsp dried dill or thyme
1 1/2 tsp olive oil
2 tsp sea salt
Let us begin:
Preheat oven to 350'
On a sided baking sheet spread out almonds.
Drizzle with olive oil, dill or thyme, and 1 tsp salt.
Roast in oven 5 minutes, stir with a wooden spatula or spoon.
Roast an additional 5 minutes. If almonds have become lightly golden, they are done. If not stir again and return to oven for an additional 5 minutes.
Once almonds have golden, carefully remove from oven and give them a quick stir.
Sprinkle with remaining salt and let the cool on tray 10 minutes.
Serve slightly warmed or allow to cool for storage up to 1 week, enjoy!
