Savory Spiced Almonds

"You won't be able to eat just one of these!" assures Keri Scofield Lawson of Fullerton, California. "So make several batches to share. They're a great snack anytime."

    I registered for the sole purpose of warning people away from this recipe. I wasted 4 cups of almonds making this, and I am left with a bag of this stuff nobody wants.As a Chef I cannot tell you how many things are wrong about this recipe. First of all, the amount of spices used are so trivial they won't impart any real flavor into the almonds. Second, removal from a pan, and placement into an oven does not offer any benefit whatsoever, it only overcooks the almonds. The best method is to leave them in the pan to soak up more flavors.Finally, placing almonds on paper towels is a ridiculous idea as it soaks up all of the butter and flavors. I cannot fathom why that idea was implemented here as it only serves to worsen the end product.The best recipe so far (with modifications) is this one; the spices, and slightly increase olive oil and it's good. Otherwise once again, far far too little spices used to impart any special flavor. Do yourself a favor, ignore this recipe, and check my link for a good one.
