MAKE IT: Seasoned Roasted Almonds

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!
