DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
  • Bring a saucepan three-fourths full of water to a boil over high heat, add the almonds and boil for 30 seconds Drain, then immediately wrap the almonds in a kitchen towel and rub them in the towel to loosen the skins Pinch the almonds from the skins; the almonds should slip out easily This step is optional and can be skipped.
  • Transfer the almonds to a heavy rimmed baking sheet.
  • Add the oil and toss to coat evenly.
  • Add the salt and toss again.
  • Place in the oven and toast, stirring the almonds once or twice so they brown evenly (about every 5 minutes), until golden brown and fragrant, 20 to 30 minutes.
  • Transfer to paper towels to cool completely, about 1 hour, before serving.
  • Adjustments: Omit oil and salt and toast as directed above for plain roasted almonds.
  • Be sure to purchase fresh almonds and not almonds that are"smoked" or"salted"- those are generally already roasted.
  • Total time is listed as 1 hour 30 minutes, with the"cooking" time as time allowed for almonds to cool completely.
