Sometimes you feel like a nut, sometimes you don’t…
I feel like a nut
Yes, I am a nut
I want a nut.
I want a sweet, spicy, salty crunchy nut.
This recipe rings all my nut bells. Sweet, spicy, super crunchy, and the best of all? super easy.
Sweet Spiced Almonds
(recipe from America’s test kitchen “All Time Best Holiday Recipes”)
1 large egg white
1 Tablespoon water
1 tsp. salt (I used 2 tsp. instead)
1 lb. raw unsalted almonds
1/2 Cup sugar
2 tsp. cinnamon (preferable saigon cinnamon)
1 tsp. ground ginger
1 tsp. ground coriander
1. Adjust oven racks to that you have one rack on each upper position and one at middle position. Preheat oven to 300 degrees.
2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and coat with non-stick spray.
3. Whisk together egg white, water, and salt in a large bowl. Add the nuts and toss to coat. Let the nuts drain thoroughly in a colander for 4-5 minutes.
4. Mix sugar, cinnamon, ginger, and coriander in a large bowl. Add the drained nuts and toss to coat with the sugar/spice mixture. Spread the nuts evenly onto the prepared baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes on upper rack. After 20 minutes move the sheet to the middle rack and continue backing 20-25 minutes until the nuts are dry and crisp. Cool nuts completely.
