    This recipe is really quite fantastic. I've made this a couple of years in a row as a Christmas gift for folks and they just love it! And you're's important to make enough because a good portion of them don't make it out of the kitchen. Thank you very much! For those not on the metric system, the conversions are 1.1 lbs almonds and .85 cup water. This recipe has enough wiggle room in it that the level of precision is not as important as in other recipes. To dry the almonds (in Colorado, USA where it's dry anyway) I roast for 15 minutes initially, and then 20 minutes after the addition of the spices, stirring every 5 minutes.

    I am very happy that you like the recipe. Normally I am making the Porter Roasted Almonds but that require a strong tasting beer and a big batch of almonds.
    I often have the thought "I will not eat more now" and seconds later I am eating another portion.
    Happy roasting
