Have you noticed how everything lately has been either toasted or roasted?
Must be the colder weather causing this. Cold food just is no where near as appealing when it’s snowing outside.
Typically, my family buys a ridiculously large (and yet not-large-enough) container of salted, roasted almonds fairly often. Well, my dad likes to get the container of raw almonds instead. Last trip to the grocery store, my dad went alone, and guess what. No roasted almonds…just raw almonds. I did not mind, by my mom was another story.
I decided to try and make everyone happy. Less altruistically, I had this recipe that I had found months ago and had been wanting to try–this seemed like the perfect opportunity!
The one thing I would say, though, is to be sure to allow them to cool before you eat them. I tasted them while they were still warm, and I was disappointed. The flavour is much better when they are completely cooled. Enjoy!
