Yum! And easy to make. I used regular almonds because i couldn't find blanched almonds. I added some to gently warmed extra virgin olive oil to dip bread into. everyone liked it. Now to find other ways to use it! Made for Welcome to Egypt in the NA/ME Forum 5/12.

Wish I had hazelnuts on hand to make this. They grow here in abundance. I toasted
the almonds in the same pan as the spices. This was delicious sprinkled on homemade French bread with a spoonful of crumbled Turkish feta, drizzle of olive oil and garnish of fresh basil. Now I have to find other recipes for using this mixture. Thanks for posting the recipe. Made for WELCOME TO EGYPT!
