Salted Almonds: The Perfect Snack

Salted Almonds: The Perfect Snack

A few weekends ago I was in my hometown to say ‘yes’ to my wedding dress. It was amazing. A day filled with my closest girls, including my mother and sister. I had arranged a brunch with mimosas and strawberries, as this is close to mandatory.

Nevertheless, the car trip home is always fun. A girl friend of mine picked me up at work, and I had made some salted almonds for us to snack on while driving and talking. It was my first time making homemade salted almonds, as I usually “just” buy the ones from the store. I was a huge success, and I will definitely continue making these bad boys at home. So simple, yet so good.

The Goodies:

  • 150 gr natural almonds
  • 1 1/2 dl water
  • 1 tbsp good salt – I use Maldon Salt

The How:

  1. Pre-heat oven to 150° Celcius
  2. Put water and salt in a pan of a suitable size
  3. Bring to boil
  4. Add almonds and stir
  5. Let simmer until all water has disappeared (until evaporated)
  6. Place on a baking sheet on a baking pan and put in oven to dry for 15 minutes
  7. Let the almonds cool off entirely before eating
  8. Store in airtight containers 🙂

I made the almonds at night and left them to fully dry over night. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do. Perhaps adding some licorice powder if that would be as delicious? May be a project for another time.
