These are yummy with drinks, or as a snack. Fleur de sel is formed on the top of evaporating sea water. You can find it in spice shops or specialty shops. Otherwise sea salt should work, perhaps crushed a little. The restaurant in Chelsea Quebec sell these and have often sold out. Edited to add the timing of adding the salt..dont wait til the syrup hardens.
- Toss almonds with maple syrup. Add oil and toss to coat.
- Spread on parchment lined baking sheet and bake at 325 until fragrant and syrup has thickened and coated the nuts, about 20 minutes. Stir every 5 minutes.
- Remove from oven and sprinkle with salt IMMEDIATELY before the syrup hardens and so they can adhere. Let cool on pan. Break any clumps apart and package in jars. Store airtight at room temperature.
