Recipe Ingredients for Almonds candied with cinnamon and cayenne

12 oz raw almonds
2 tablespoons maple syrup
1 tablespoon canola oil
1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1 teaspoon cayenne powder

Recipe Directions for Almonds candied with cinnamon and cayenne

  1. Place a rack in the middle of your oven. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.

  2. Place nuts in a large bowl. When you roast the nuts, roast each variety in separate glass or ceramic baking dishes as their roasting times vary slightly. You can put two dishes of nuts in the oven at once so long as they fit on the same middle rack. If the nuts are too close to the heating element they?ll burn.

  3. Combine agave, oil, cinnamon, salt, and cayenne powder in a glass measuring cup. Pour mixture over nuts and toss to coat completely. Place nuts in a glass baking dish in a single layer. Bake for 12 ? 15 minutes, stirring after 6 minutes. Test for doneness at 12 minutes. Nuts will still be soft when done and will get crisp as they cool.

  4. Let nuts cool in glass dish for a few minutes. Stir to toss nuts in any remaining agave mix on the bottom of the pan. Place on heavy duty aluminum foil to cool completely, separating nuts as much as possible so they don?t dry in clumps.

  5. For almonds: these take several more minutes to cook. Once cooked, allow to cool in pan, tossing in agave mix. Since the almonds have no ridges to soak up the flavoring, you may need to add a little salt, cinnamon, or cayenne. Taste the nuts and adjust the seasoning as needed. Once they?ve cooled and have nice globs of spicy cinnamon agave on them, move them to heavy duty aluminum foil to cool completely.

  6. Store in mason jars for optimal freshness.

  7. Variation: Use 1 1/2 teaspoons curry powder in place of the cinnamon and cayenne.
