Sweet And Spicy Almonds


I have been making these “sweet and spicy” snacks for several years now and have adapted the original recipe and now they are super easy to make, using just 4 ingredients! We are quite fortunate to actually have an almond tree in our yard that produces abundant amounts of almonds each year, unless we get a late freeze in the spring; which was the case this year and it wiped out the entire crop! I still had some from the previous year’s crop, so during harvest time in August, I pick and freeze them for later use. The holidays always encourage that batches of these be made in advance! They are a big hit at parties and would make a great last minute gift for a teacher, neighbor, or hostess. Put them into cellophane baggies and attach a card or have them on hand to serve as a quick and tasty snack for guests. Everyone will be ravin’ over these Cajun’ Spiced Almonds!
