Have you ever had roasted almonds before?? The hubby and I first had them when we traveled to Europe as newlyweds. We had just gone to Tower Bridge (often mistaked for London bridge) and were cold and hungry. There were street vendors near by and one was selling cinnamon roasted nuts. We instantly fell in love and may have gotten a few bags of the goodies during our stay there.
I had never tried to make these roasted almonds on my own but thought we’d give it a go since the hubby craves them all the time. I’m so glad we ended up trying them because they were so easy and so tasty. The jar I made was gone in just a day with the help of the whole family.
The almonds were so tasty wrapped in cinnamon, but we are excited to try these with other nuts. The next to try is walnuts (or cashews)! In fact, packages in a cute jar and with a bow on top, these would be great Christmas gifts for friends and neighbors. I think you’ll love these nuts as much as we did. 🙂
