Roasted, Salted Almonds

Post date: 04 Feb 2018

For hikes and backpacking trips! It’s based on this recipe. We frequently use huā jiāo, but really, lots of flavor profiles can work here.

For each 4 1/2 cups raw almonds:

  • Dissolve in 1 1/2 tsp salt in 1 1/2 tbsp boiling water.
  • Mix/coat almonds with salt water.
  • Spread out on silpat on a baking sheet.
  • Cook for 15-20 minutes (until browned inside and out) at 375F, stirring halfway through for even cooking.
  • Mix/coat almonds with 2 tbsp olive oil, coating with additional salt, sugar, and seasonings as desired.
  • Spread out to cool for at least an hour.

Do not burn the almonds! 375F might simply be too hot.
