HONEY ROASTED ALMONDS
Whole almonds (with skin) - 2 cups
Sugar - 1/4 cup
Honey - 2 tbsp
Salt - 1/2 tsp
Water - 2 tbsp
Vegetable/Canola oil - 2 tsp
1) Preheat oven to 350F. Cover a baking sheet with aluminium foil (with the dull side up and shiny side down). Spread the almonds on this as a single layer and bake for 12 to 15 minutes stirring once or twice in between to ensure that it's roasted uniformly. Remove from oven and set aside.
2) Mix sugar and salt in a bowl. Heat a wide pan on medium and add honey, water, oil & stir. Allow to boil and add the roasted almonds and keep stirring and cooking till all the liquid has been absorbed by the nuts.
3) Immediately transfer to a bowl and sprinkle the sugar-salt mixture over it and toss so it's uniformly coated.
4) Spread this almond mixture on the foil covered baking sheet and allow to cool completely.
Tasty honey roasted nuts are ready to devour or pack and gift.
