Hickory Smoked Almonds






I just love this kind of almond. I buy them as a treat every so often. I was going to buy some today and decided I could probably make them. Without all of the extras they add in. So I came home and tried it out. I was happy with the result.

1 Egg White * Use water or something else for vegan version.
2 tsp Salt (I used real salt)
1/2 tsp Liquid Hickory Smoke
3 C Raw Almonds

1. Beat the egg white in a bowl till foamy. Then add the Salt and Liquid smoke. Beat together.

2. Throw in the almonds. Stir until all the almonds are covered.

3. Grease a cookie sheet. Spread the Almonds out on the cookie sheet.

4. Bake at 300 for about 30 min. Stir them every 10 min.

Couldn't be much easier than than. I chopped some up in my chopper, for a salad tonight Yum!

  2. I don't know I have never used one of them. You could give it a shot. They turned out really well. I am excited to be able to make them, so quick and easy. You will have to let me know how it goes. :)

  3. Yes, you can also use your smoker!!
    I smoke the almonds @250 F for 1 and a half hour, stirring them every 10- 15 minutes!!
    If you use also the liquid smoke could be a nice option, because it enhaces the smoked flavour to the almonds.

    Also try to smoke green olives and serve them with cheese and your favourite wine!!
