Rosemary Almonds

February 16, 2011

Today is National Almond Day! And Rosemary Almonds are the perfect tribute. I first fell in love with these tasty snackers when my girlfriend Katey made them for a dinner party. Instantly addicted, I couldn’t move away from the bowl – not even to refill my Champagne glass! It’s both a blessing and a curse that these darlings are oven ready in under ten minutes. They keep for weeks in an air-tight container, but don’t expect them to last that long.

Rosemary Almonds

Ingredients

1 T butter
2 cloves garlic, minced

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. Melt butter in a large skillet.
  3. Add rosemary and garlic. Saute for one minute, until fragrant.
  4. Add almonds and salt to taste. Stir until the almonds are shiny, about one minute.
  5. Stir in Worcestershire sauce.

  7. Bake 5 minutes. Gently shake pan to redistribute the nuts.
  8. Return almonds to oven and bake for five more minutes.
