When you buy giant bags of raw almonds from Costco this is a great recipe for using some of them! They have a really nice roasted, earthy, salty flavor, without the salt getting all over your fingers. :) And they're way cheaper than buying Tamari almonds at Whole Foods or Trader Joe's. This is an epicurious recipe with the amounts tweaked slightly. Tamari is basically real, awesome soy sauce that hasn't been super processed and filled with preservatives.
