Recipe

For those who like an added crunch on their salad, make these nuts ahead of time to sprinkle on Grilled Chicken Mandarin Salad or another one of your favorite salads.

Yield: Makes ½ cup (125 mL)

Ingredients

  • ½ cup (125 mL) slivered almonds
  • 2 tbsp (25 mL) granulated sugar

Directions

1. In a small frying pan, cook almonds and sugar over medium heat, stirring constantly, until sugar is melted and almonds are coated and lightly browned. Set aside to cool then separate. Store in an airtight container for up to 3 months.

Variation: Substitute pecan halves, pine nuts or a mixture of nuts for the almonds.

Notes

Remember, melted sugar is hotter than deep fat. Remove the pan from the heat just as the sugar melts and begins to darken, as it burns very easily.

Double the recipe so there is lots to nibble on while enjoying a glass of wine.
