One thing that I absolutely love to get from winter fairs, especially in Europe are the roasted nuts. Instead of paying an arm and a leg for them I thought that I might as well just try and make my own, and I am sure glad I did. This recipe from Sweet Pea’s Kitchen, is simple and leaves you with irresistible cinnamon roasted almonds…almost too irresistible. At least you are getting some protein when you eat them, right?
1 egg white
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
4 cups whole raw almonds
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 teaspoons ground cinnamon
Preheat oven to 250 degrees F. Line a 10×15 inch jellyroll pan with parchment paper.
In a medium bowl beat the egg white and vanilla until frothy but not stiff. Add the nuts, and stir until well coated. Mix the sugars, salt and cinnamon into the nut mixture. Toss to coat. Spread evenly on the prepared pan.
Bake in preheated oven for 1 hour and 15 minutes, stirring occasionally, until golden. Allow to cool. Store nuts in airtight containers.
