Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 cups whole unblanched almonds
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons coarse sea salt
  • 2 teaspoons pickling salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons liquid honey
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon vegetable oil

Method

On parchment paper-lined or greased rimmed baking sheet, toast almonds in 350°F (180°C) oven, stirring occasionally, until fragrant, about 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, in large bowl, combine sugar, salt and ginger; set aside.

In saucepan, bring water, honey and oil to boil; reduce heat to medium-low. Add almonds, stirring to coat; simmer, stirring, until almost no liquid remains, about 3 minutes. Add to sugar mixture; toss to coat well.

Spread on same baking sheet, separating nuts; let cool. (Make-ahead: Store in airtight container at room temperature for up to 1 week.)
