Candied Rosemary Almonds

Candied Rosemary Almonds

If you’re going to make these Candied Rosemary Almonds, I’d highly recommend doubling the recipe. One handful isn’t enough. The buttery salty-sweet combination is balanced by the fresh earthy rosemary.  These are good nibbles to have on hand and they make a tasty, somewhat nutritious snack. If you consider butter and sugar nutritious. -bvox

  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • Coarse salt
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 tablespoons honey (or maple syrup)
  • 2 cups almonds (raw or blanched)
  • 2 tablespoons fresh rosemary

Preheat oven to 375 F. Stir together 4 teaspoons sugar and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Heat butter and honey over medium-high heat in a large skillet until bubbling. Remove from heat. Add almonds and rosemary, and toss to coat.

Transfer almond-rosemary mixture to a rimmed baking sheet (do not scrape excess syrup from skillet). Sprinkle with sugar-salt mixture.
