Spiced Roasted Almonds

  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/4 teaspoon allspice
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3 cups unsalted almonds
  1. Line a rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil and set aside.
  2. In a large non-stick skillet, combine water, sugar, cinnamon, cloves, allspice, ginger, nutmeg, vanilla, and salt.
  3. Bring mixture to a boil, then add the almonds and vanilla and lower to medium heat.
  4. Continue cooking and stirring until water is gone. Sugar will change to a coarse and dry consistency. Keep stirring. Once glaze starts to look shiny, pour onto prepared pan.
  5. Break up clumps with a wooden spoon as nuts cool to separate. Let harden and enjoy!
