What do you like to munch on when you just need a little nibble of something? Open the refrigerator hmmm, what is in there? Or open the pantry cupboard..hmmm still not sure what you want to nibble on? You want protein so it doesn’t add inches to your hips.. maybe a bit of saltiness…
You know those little tiny cans of smoked almonds in the store that cost a bunch? You can create them and you will be ama-a-azed how much they taste like the little cans of smoked almonds. And there is your munchie.
Only now you can make them whenever you want to and save yourself a bucket of money too! And if you think it is hard… it’s not… if it will take special equipment…it doesn’t.
You will probably make these smokey almonds in a larger quantity once you see how easy they are and how like the little cans of smoked almonds they taste like. In 30 minutes you can be nibbling on your own smoked almonds! To create the smoked almonds we’ll use liquid smoke, I like Wrights Concentrated Liquid Smoke, this has been my go to brand for years.
Notice the ingredients on the back panel (liquid smoke) compared to other brands and I believe you will pick this brand too if it is available in your market.
I was going to have a salad recipe to put your smokey almonds on. I have had another horrid head cold that has made it difficult to do much so the salad with the almonds will be coming later this week.
I made these the first time with 1/2 teaspoon of sea salt and the next time with 1 teaspoon, for my taste buds the 1 teaspoon was a bit salty, but if I had used kosher salt it would have been just right. If you like salty foods, use the 1 teaspoon.
Ok, my friends, I’m going to go put my feet up
and nibble on some smoked almonds. If you don’t have any liquid smoke, put it on your grocery list along with a bag of almonds from Costco or where ever you shop for your nuts and make some for the upcoming Oscars on March 4, 2018. Are there other seasoned nuts that you create? I’d love to know what they are and what you thought of this recipe. Enjoy!
