I LOVE these almonds with a pinch of cayenne, but feel free to use whatever spice you want.

The secret is the deep frying... it makes the nuts all crispy and wonderful!

You will need:

2 cups blanched almonds

vegetable oil

2 tablespoons sugar

1 tablespoon flaky sea salt

pinch of cayenne pepper

  1. Heat the oil in a pan. You will want enough oil to allow your nuts to be completely submerged.
  2. Mix your seasoning in a bowl. Get creative! Use what you like!
  3. Deep fry the nuts in small batches at a time, about 1 minute or until golden.
  4. Place on paper towels and sprinkle with the spices.
  5. Eat within an hour for best taste!
