Long before we found out that almonds were so good for us Mum was making these for nibbling on.
HOT & SPICY ALMONDS
- 250g unbalanced whole almonds
- 1 teaspoon chilli powder (or paprika if less spicy wanted)
- 1 large clove garlic
- 50g chopped butter
Peel & crush garlic, put in heavy frying pan with all the other ingredients. Place over medium heat and toss mixture with spatula or wooden spoon until nuts turn light brown and look nicely crisp. Allow to cool and store in a clean jar.
