Stepf's Sweet and SPICY Smoked Almonds

Submitted by: STEPFANIER

Introduction

I made these almonds as a gift for the Foodbuzz bloggers conference. The recipe is incredibly simple, and I made it special by using chiles I'd grown, dried, and ground myself, along with fresh rosemary from my garden. Make sure you use smoked paprika in this recipe, as it is what lends the signature smoked flavor. I made these almonds as a gift for the Foodbuzz bloggers conference.

Ingredients

    4 cups raw almonds
    1 T chili powder or flakes (I used ground whole chilis)
    1 T smoked paprika
    1 t ground cumin
    1 1/2 t cinnamon

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

In a medium bowl, mix the spices together, then add the egg whites and mix thoroughly. Add the brown sugar and stir until the sugar is completely wet. Add the almonds and mix well to coat.

Cover a baking sheet with parchment paper. Spread the almonds in a single layer on the pan.

Bake 25 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the coating has adhered. The coating will still be slightly tacky.

Allow to cool and place in airtight containers. Store in a cool, dark place for up to two weeks.

Makes 16 1/4 cup servings.

  • I do not like hot spices so I did mine with just cinnamon and nutmeg, egg white and brown sugar. They are so good! The almonds I started with where not the best so it is amazing that they taste good now. - 9/19/13
