Yeah this really is that easy to make yourself!

I can’t believe I hadn’t until recently. All you need is a bit of patience while the nuts soak, bake and then cool.

Salted almonds are simple and tasty snack served on their own, maybe as part of a lunch pack. I like to bring a little container with me to uni to snack on.

The nuts can also be an option for party snacks for people to nibble on, and goes great with a drink.

Alternatively you can chop the almonds and sprinkle them on a salad to add a salty crunch of deliciousness. Just wait with adding them until the last minute so they don’t go soggy.

For this recipe I made a big batch of 400 g, and are storing them in an airtight container so they’ll last (… however long it’ll take for S to eat them all, given how much he loves to snack on them).

If you wanna go advanced (as advanced as such a simple recipe can get), try adding more spices to your taste, like cayenne pepper or paprika.

The biggest downside here is how expensive almonds are (in Denmark, at minimum). But at least it’s still cheaper to get the almonds unprepared than buying them salted!

Imagine my glee when I was transferring the almonds to the jar, S kept saying they wouldn’t fit (and consequently he would sadly have to eat the rest) – but then BAM the lid screwed tight without a hitch.
