Food-Talk is what we do better, and it always IS better! Case in point: last night, I ate handfuls of pretzels and a bowl of these honey roasted almonds. I also drank 2 cups of chamomile tea (to calm down while waiting for the votes to come in) AND I had a glass of wine before finally hitting the pillow. Swear, I think I even ate a piece of cake. Stress-eating is my sport.
Time to confess. Do you buy gourmet nuts or do you make ’em from scratch? Be honeeeeest. Because if you say I buy ’em, I’ll still high-five you. All that extra powered added artificial ingredient madness? LUH-UH-UH-VE it.
Personally, I buy raw nuts and werrrk ’em how I want ’em, with just couple more ingredients.
While honey roasted nuts are high in fat, they’re still healthy. Unsaturated fats help you absorb vitamins and keep your muscles healthy.
STAR Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil, with its rich fruity olive taste and a bold peppery finish, adds a hint of flavor and a subtle fragrance to our crunchy almonds. To add, it is made from organic olives harvested and processed to maintain organic integrity that meets the stringent standards of the USDA Organic Program.
We’ve actually been roasting our peanuts and almonds for years. Now that I think of it, my mom almost always bought raw peanuts or almonds and popped them in the oven with just a hint of salt.
While salt is great, I think we can make these greatERRR by adding just a bit of honey and a drizzle of STAR’s Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil. AND! You should totally start doing that yourself, too. It’s easy, and delicious, and YOU get to decide on the flavors. Not the electoral college. HAHAHA! I crack myself up…
Okay. SO. HOW DO YOU MAKE Roasted Almonds. with honey.
All I need you to do is grab a skillet, combine the olive oil, honey and water in said skillet, heat it up to thin out the liquid, throw in the almonds, transfer and spread them out on a parchment paper-lined sheet pan, roast, and boom.
Don’t forget the salt! The salt makes a huuuuge difference. Unless you don’t want that salty/sweet thang. Then I understand.
While you’re at it, put some aside for gifting. Trust me. Food gifts are GOD sent!
