Almonds II

As I said a while ago, I really like almonds. I had some roasted almonds I bought at Trader Joe's a while back which were roasted in olive oil, salt and rosemary. They had this nice rosemary scent which I really liked a lot. These were some kind of special Spanish almonds but I figured it wouldn't be hard to do with regular ones for a lot less. (I should try it with the fancy Spanish almonds.) There are numerous recipes on the web for this sort of thing but here's what I did:

1 cup raw almonds (blanched is probably best)
3 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp sea salt
2 tbsp dried rosemary (I didn't grind it but this would have been better)
1 tsp dried rubbed sage

Times are approximate, you'll have to test the almonds and watch to make sure they don't burn!

Put a saucepan on medium-low heat. Toss the almonds, 2 tbsp olive oil and the salt and allow to roast covered for approximately five to seven minutes, stirring occasionally to ensure even roasting. The nuts will get soft during this time. Add the remaining olive oil, rosemary and sage, toss and allow to roast uncovered for an additional three to five minutes. Allow the almonds to harden before serving, though they are best when still warm.

Comments

Well they were OK the next day but not like the day they were made. The salt and rosemary didn't adhere to the almonds after cooling down.

Any ideas?

Brown sugar.

Interesting notion but this is supposed to be savory, not sweet, and I worry that something like brown sugar would shift the flavor substantially. Maybe it would work better with finer salt and crushed rosemary. Egg whites might do the trick in a relatively flavorless way.

Although I think a small amount of brown sugar isn't going to make it too sweet, particularly given the salt.

Hmmm, good point. Might be worth a try. Grind the whole mixture up in a mortar and pestle?

We have been making almonds at the Holidays for years.

Make sure to not use too much oil - it prevents the salt from sticking.

I have never tried the rosemary.

So, roast the blanched almonds in just the very hot olive oil. When I make mine, I stir constantly.

Remove from the heat, and use a slotted spoon to remove, then place on a brown paper bag to drain the oil. Sprinkle with a good sea salt, and in your case, add the rosemary as well.

Enjoy!

Thanks. I tried to keep the oil minimal but I think the problem was too coarse ingredients. I have a burr coffee grinder but I should probably buy a blade grinder for spice grinding. Maybe Stuart's favorite mortar and pestle would be the best?

It was a mac cosmetics six-page letter, north face outlet unlike any he had ever written before. moncler It did not have the tone, or thestyle, or the rhetorical air of timberland his early years p90x workout of love, ugg,ugg australia,ugg italia and his argument was so rational andmeasured that the scent of canada goose uk a gardenia would have been out of place. In a certain sense it was hisclosest approximation to the business letters he had never been ray ban sunglasses able to write. Years later, louboutin a typedpersonal letter would be considered almost an insult, but at that gucci,borse gucci,gucci sito ufficiale,gucci outlet time the typewriter was still oakley,occhiali oakley,oakley italia anoffice giuseppe zanotti animal without its own code of ethics, vans,vans scarpe,vans italia and barbour jackets its baseball bats domestication for personal hollister use was notforeseen in the louis vuitton books on etiquette. It seemed ralph lauren more like bold modernity, which was how prada outlet FerminaDaza thomas sabo must nfl jerseys have ray ban pas cher understood it, for louis vuitton in her second moncler,moncler letter to Florentino Ariza, she began by begginghis pardon for any difficulties in reading her handwriting, since polo ralph lauren outlet she did not louboutin shoes have at her disposalany means more advanced than her steel pen.Florentino Ariza did not even vans shoes refer to the terrible polo ralph lauren outlet letter that she vanessa bruno had insanity workout sent him, moncler outlet but from thevery hollister beginning hollister pas cher he attempted a new method of seduction, without any montre pas cher reference to past loves wedding dresses oreven to the past nike free itself: a clean slate. Instead, he wrote north face outlet an extensive meditation on life based on supra shoes hisideas about, and hogan experience of, relations between men and women, which at one time he hadintended to write as air max,nike air max a complement hollister to michael kors outlet the Lovers' Companion. Only now he disguised it in thepatriarchal style of an old true religion jeans man's memories so that beats by dre it would nike air max not be too obvious that it was chanel handbags really soccer shoes adocument chi flat iron of karen millen love.

But oakley sunglasses he knew nike free run uk that any conventional slip, coach outlet the slightestnostalgic indiscretion, could revive converse outlet the unpleasant abercrombie and fitch taste michael kors of the past wedding dresses in hollister her heart, and asics running shoes although heforesaw her juicy couture outlet returning michael kors outlet a hundred letters to him ray ban,rayban,occhiali ray ban before she dared open birkin bag the first, he preferred that itnot happen even once. And so he planned herve leger everything tn pas cher down to kate spade handbags the last detail, as if it nike air max were swarovski the nike huarache,nike huaraches,nike air huarache finalbattle: new intrigues, new canada goose hopes longchamp in a woman who had nike free already lived iphone 6 cases a full and complete life. It sac longchamp hadto be a mad dream, tory burch outlet one that would give her the courage she would need to discard the prejudicesof a ray ban sunglasses class that had not air force always coach purses been hers but had coach factory outlet become ugg boots uk hers louboutin more than anyone's. It new balance had to teachher to cheap jordans think uggs on sale of love as a nike roshe run state of grace: not the pandora charms means to anything but the alpha and omega, an endin itself.He louis vuitton had the good sense prada handbags not to expect an immediate reply, moncler,moncler outlet,moncler sito ufficiale to be satisfied moncler if the letter was nike outlet notreturned to nike air max,air max,air max 2014,nike air max 2014,air max 90,airmax,air max 95,air max 2013,nike air max 90,nike air max 2013 him.

In the beginning, longchamp outlet the frequency of his letters was true religion jeans conditioned by the dexterity ofhis air jordan pas cher fingers: first jimmy choo shoes one a nike air max week, longchamp then two, and at last one a abercrombie and fitch day. He was instyler happy about the progressmade in the mail service since converse pas cher his days cheap ugg boots as a nike air max standard-bearer, for north face he would not have risked beingseen longchamp outlet every day in the post michael kors outlet office mailing burberry a letter to nike roshe the same person, or sending it with canada goose someonewho might talk. On the other hand, it was very ugg pas cher easy to send an employee to buy louboutin,louboutin outlet,louboutin outlet italia enough stamps fora month, and parajumpers outlet then slip the letter into one of the three nike blazer mailboxes located in the old polo lacoste pas cher city. He soonmade that ritual michael kors outlet a mulberry part coach outlet of his routine: sac louis vuitton pas cher he took advantage of his lululemon outlet insomnia to write, oakley pas cher and the next day,on canada goose his louis vuitton outlet way to the sac longchamp office, he -would ask the driver to stop for a moment at a corner valentino shoes box, and hewould pandora jewelry get out to mail the letter. He never allowed the chauffeur to do it air max for him, doudoune canada goose as he attempted todo one rainy vans pas cher morning, true religion jeans and at times he hollister,abercrombie,hollister sito ufficiale,abercrombie italia,abercrombie and fitch,abercrombie outlet took the precaution of carrying several nike trainers letters burberry rather thanjust one, so that it would seem more natural. The chauffeur did not know, of course, that theadditional letters were blank pages that Florentino Ariza addressed to himself, for ugg boots he had swarovski crystal nevercarried on a private correspondence with anyone, with the exception of true religion outlet the guardian's report thathe sent at the ralph lauren uk end of each moncler month canada goose to the parents of Am閞 ica Vicu帽 a, with his personalimpressions hermes of the ugg,uggs,uggs canada girl's conduct, converse,scarpe converse,converse italia,converse sito ufficiale,converse all star her state oakley sunglasses of mind and health, lululemon and nike roshe the progress cheap uggs she was making inher studies.After the first ray ban uk month mont blanc he began juicy couture outlet to number the letters and to head them with a synopsis of theprevious oakley sunglasses ones, as louboutin outlet in the serialised novels michael kors in the newspapers, for fear louis vuitton that Fermina Daza replica watches would notrealise that they had a certain continuity. ralph lauren,polo ralph lauren,ralph lauren outlet,ralph lauren italia,ralph lauren sito ufficiale When michael kors outlet they became daily letters, moreover, links of london he replacedthe envelopes that had mourning vignettes with long white envelopes, and moncler this gave them theadded impersonality of business letters.

He waited, michael kors outlet in fact, not north face with mcm handbags the many kinds of suffering that celine handbags waiting had causedhim in his reebok shoes youth, but with the tiffany and co jewelry stubbornness of an old man made of stone who had nothing else tothink about, nothing else to burberry outlet online do in a riverboat air max company that by this time was sailing without hishelp before christian louboutin outlet favourable winds, and bottes ugg who was coach outlet also convinced that canada goose outlet he would be alive and in perfectpossession of babyliss his male faculties ghd the next louis vuitton day, or the day after that, or whenever Fermina Daza atlast was convinced that there canada goose outlet was no other michael kors remedy for her solitary tiffany and co widow's yearnings than tolower the drawbridge for him.
