These roasted salty almonds can be used as a snack to serve with a cold beer or nice drink, or you can use them in dishes where you want to add almonds with a bit of extra crunch. Store-bought roasted salty almonds are often expensive, but since it is so quick and easy to make them yourself, this recipe provides you with a way to save some money while not compromising with the taste. And I would of course say that it is nice for once to literally go nuts in the kitchen 🙂
If you prefer other nuts, or would simply like to mix it up a bit, you can use the same method and substitute or mix the the almonds with other nuts like e.g. cashews or Brazil nuts.
Roasted salty almonds
12 oz (300 g) almonds
6 oz (125 g) kosher salt
2 cups (5 dl) water
1. Pour the water and salt into a small saucepan and bring it to a boil until all the salt has dissolved. Then take the salted water off the heat and soak the almonds in the water for 30 minutes. Sift away the water.
2. Line a baking tray with baking parchment and spread the almonds evenly on top. Bake the almonds for 20 minutes in a preheated oven at 350 Fahrenheit (175 Celsius). Remember to stir regularly to make sure the almonds dry up. Once you take them out of the oven, let them cool completely before storing in an airtight container or serving them right away.
