Reviews for Holiday Almonds
"Wonderful! I am giving these tucked into my handpainted wine glasses for the holidays."
"Does anyone know how to make cinnamon almonds? My granddaughter buys them like this at fairs and just loves them. Would I still coat them in egg whites and then toss in cinnamon/sugar? I tried making these once but the spice wouldn't stick. I wonder if I'd still want a little salt too. Also, would I still use blanched almonds?? Can anyone help?"
"These almonds are absolutely delicious and my family loves them. We will be making this recipe many more times."
"Great, yummy, just be sure to buy blanched almonds, took me forever to blanch them myself-maybe I'm just hopeless though!"
"I made this recipe last year and they only lasted 20 minutes. I have already had request from family and friends to make them again this Christmas. They are fantastic. Great for gift giving too. Will make again for sure."
"Judy, I have made more of a recipe similar to this, with pecans. You will need 10 times the amount of each ingredient. However, I recommend doing each batch individually. First of all, it would be hard to find a bowl large enough to hold 20 c of almonds while still having room to mix everything. Plus, the individual almonds wouldn't get coated as evenly. Doing it individually ensures the proper results. Plus, as one batch fits on a cookie sheet, there's no need to guess how many to put on. I recommend tasting the first batch to make sure you like the ratio of ingredients given, as you can always adjust at this point for the rest of the batches. Good luck!"
"place nut in boiled water for 5 minutes, then slip skins off by pinching nut with fingers. Make small batches for best results. barbara miner"
"I want to make 20 cups. Do I increase each ingredient by 10? Has anyone else done this? Thanks, Judy"
"to mamainsonora re: how long to leave the nuts in boiling water to remove the skins. You leave them until they start to float, then you scoop them out and when you are able to touch them, you just pinch then end and the nut will pop out leaving you holding the skin.slawgirl"
"I,also would like to know how long to leave nuts in boiling water?mamainsonora"
" You can find them, in the baking section of the grocery store, already blanched. It just means that the skins have been removed.
"How do you blanche alomonds? I understand you drop them in boiling water for a short period, but how long do they stay in the water?"
