I’ve Got A Lovely Bunch Of Honey Spiced Almonds

I’ve Got A Lovely Bunch Of Honey Spiced Almonds

These almonds won’t disappoint with a kick of spicy and sweet. As Summer fades (take the heat with you please!) and Fall approaches (it will get here, right?), I think of roasting nuts. (Hubby’s comments have been intentionally censored.)

Nuts are such a great source of protein and a healthy snack. The challenge is to only eat a few. I keep a small baggy filled with almonds in my purse all the time. Do I look a little goofy carrying my purse around the house in case I have a nut attack? Probably, but ask me if I care as I’m nibbling away at a few more nuts.

I’m not alone in my goofy ways of doing things. Frightening that there are more of us in the world. 😉 A friend of mine who works in her home takes her purse with her to her in-home office in the morning and then takes it with her when she walks out of her office at the end of the work day. I used to think that was a little odd, but I now understand the advantages. After all, most women have a snapshot of their lives in their purse, and…. I have NUTS!

I use raw almonds you can find in bulk.

Sautéing with the coating.
The nuts are a little sticky when hot.

Laid out on parchment paper to dry.

Ready to munch.

These almonds make great gifts too!
