Salted, freshly roasted almonds are a popular snack food in Morocco. Here's how to make them.
I've suggested roasting two cups, but you can make any quantity as long as the almonds rest in a single layer on the baking pan.
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 20 minutes
- 2 cups raw whole almonds with skin
- table salt or extra fine salt
- water for rinsing the almonds
Preheat an oven to 400°F (200°C).
Rinse the almonds in cold water and allow them to drain in a colander for a few minutes.
Prepare a baking pan by generously sprinkling salt across the bottom. Add the almonds to the pan in a single layer, and generously sprinkle salt over the almonds.
Roast the almonds in the hot oven for 10 to 12 minutes, or until the almonds have barely darkened and are fragrant.
Allow the almonds to cool completely before storing in an airtight container.
