salty and sweet too

We were inspired to find a recipe for Sal del Mar’s tasting at Fashion’s Night Out at Pome in Denver on this Thursday, September 8th. The recipe had to compliment the margarita’s (salted with Sal del Margarita, of course) being served as part of the celebration. We found a version of this sweet and salty almond and adapted it. The healthy sprinkling of our coarse grain Sal del Mar combined with honey and olive oil turned out so well we think it would make a great hostess gift for a dinner party or for holiday gifts.  And it is so simple to make!

SWEET AND SALTY ALMONDS by SAL DEL MAR (Adapted from a Martha Stewart recipe)

2 1/2 cups of dry roasted and unsalted almonds 1/4 cup sugar 1 1/2 teaspoons Sal del Mar 1 teaspoon of cayenne pepper 2 Tablespoon of Nature's Agave™ Raw nectar 1 Tablespoon of water 1 Tablespoon of olive oil

Preheat oven to 350. Spread almonds on a rimmed baking sheet and bake about 10 minutes. In a large bowl, combine sugar, salt and cayenne pepper. In a large skillet over medium heat, cook Nature's Agave™ Raw nectar with water and olive oil, stirring until combined, about 1 minute. Add almonds and toss to coat. Transfer nuts to sugar mixture being careful not to scrape the extra glaze into the bowl. Toss to coat.  Cool in a single layer.

Buen Provecho!
