A few weeks ago, a friend made four flavors of roasted almonds. Some were sweet and some were savory. I ordered almonds to make some but was halfway afraid to eat them with two temporary crowns in my mouth. Today I go back to the dentist to get permanent crowns so I figured what the heck . . I would roast some almonds. I made one batch with salt, chili powder and rosemary.
Almonds are supposed to be pretty healthy . . a source of protein and there’s some research showing they can help lower LDL Cholesterol. They have to be better than potato chips or cookies, right?
These are delicious! Vince doesn’t much like rosemary. I could (and sometimes do) eat it straight off the plant. I think it tastes so good .. but he doesn’t like cilantro either and I love that stuff too. Anyway, I put way less rosemary than I would have liked but this way, he should like them too.
Next, I’m going to make some using Herbs de Provence. I’m not sure if Vince will like those so I’ll make a smaller batch. This one was 11 oz. of almonds with the rosemary. Maybe I’ll do 5 oz. with the Herbs de Provence in case he doesn’t like them.
