I love almonds and hope you will too!
ORGANIC MESQUITE HONEY ALMONDS WITH FLOR DE SAL!
So easy to make and the perfect treat to enjoy as a Gluten Free snack any time of the day. Make them as a gift or bring them to a party to serve with drinks!
The honey is from the native organically managed mesquite forest of Northern Peru. Its slightly smoky flavor gives the almonds a perfectly sweet bite. The sea salt ... just a little goes a long way to enhance the blend of flavors and accentuate the caramel creation from the roasting.
This recipe will serve a small gathering for 4-6 people.
2 cups Organic raw almonds
2 Tbs butter
2 Tbs Zócalo Gourmet - Organic Mesquite Honey
a pinch or 2 Matiz - Flor de Sal - Sea Salt
spatula or tongs
Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees.
Place the butter in a fry pan and turn the heat to medium-high. Once the butter begins to melt add the almonds. Toss the almonds so that they are all covered in the butter and let them cook for 3-4 minutes. Reduce the heat to medium and add the honey. Toss the almonds to make sure they are evenly coated. Cook for 1-2 minutes. Turn off heat.
Place a sheet of parchment paper on the baking pan. Pour the butter and honey coated almonds on to the baking pan. Spread the almonds out in a layer, allowing the almonds to touch to create clusters. Bake in the oven for 15-17 minutes. The aroma is absolutely amazing! Remove from oven and let cool for 2 minutes. Add the sprinkles of Flor de Sal or Sea Salt. Let cool at least 1hour before serving.
not likely ...
wrap them in the parchment paper and then in a self sealing bag or glass container, in a cool place, away from heat. Depending on the weather, humidity, they may get a little stickier ... is that such a bad thing?
