Nothing sets off a friendly gathering or garden party, quite like a selection of delicious snacks and nibbles! Whether it's as part of a tasty buffet, or just to give you guests something to munch between drinks, small and easy-to-prepare dishes are a great way to put on an impressive variety of food, without all the stress.
Nuts and seeds of course, are one of the most popular nibbles all year round; whether it's mixed nuts at Christmas or salted peanuts with a summer cocktail in the sun. If you fancy something a bit more adventurous, however, such as coated and flavoured varieties, your shopping list could get rather more expensive by the time you've finished!
If you want to serve up a delicious and unusual, nutty snack at your next get-together, why not try creating your own roasted almonds? Today, we're sharing a recipe for sweet, cinnamon flavoured almonds from the All Recipeswebsite, but you could always try out your own flavours and ingredients in future!
- 1 egg white
- 1 teaspoon cold water
- 4 cups of whole almonds
- 1/2 cup white sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon of salt
- 1/2 teaspoon of Ground cinnamon
Step 1 - Preheat the oven to 120 degrees (250F). Lightly grease your roasting tin.
Step 2 - Lightly beat your egg white, and add the water. Beat the mixture until frothy but not stiff (we're not making meringues!).
Step 3 - Add the almonds to the egg whites, and stir them until they are well coated.
Step 4 - In a clean bowl, mix the sugar, salt and cinnamon, then sprinkle this mixture over the coated nuts.
Step 5 - Toss the mixture together, then spread it out evenly in your prepared roasting dish.
Step 6 - Bake the almonds in your prepared oven for 1 hour, giving them the occasional stir, until they are golden in colour.
Step 7 - If you're making your snack in advance, make sure you store them in an air tight container to keep them fresh.
