Roast Your Own

Roast Your Own

Yes, you can make cinnamon almonds in your own kitchen, right on your stove, and I am going to tell you how.  


Almonds   2 Cups

Sugar    1-2 Cups (as you like it)

Cinnamon    1 Tablespoon

Vanilla    1 Teaspoon

Water    1/2 Cup, then a 1/4 Cup at the end

Now, get ready to stir! 

It takes about 20 minutes to finish a batch, stirring the whole time.  

Combine all the ingredients into a 3 to 4 quart sauce pan and place on medium-high heat.  

Start stirring immediately and don't stop until the batch is done.  

After all the water boils off, the sugar will be very powdery and will start to melt.  

Depending on the level of heat, it might take 8-12 minutes or more for the sugar to powder.  

When the sugar starts melting, it is most important to keep stirring, in order to coat the nuts evenly and prevent the batch from burning.  

When the sugar looks half wet/half dry, turn off the heat and splash the batch with a 1/4 cup of water.  


The batch will steam a lot, and it is hot! 

When the steam clears, continue to stir until all the nuts are coated with water.  

Dump the batch onto a baking pan and spread them out so they can cool and dry.  

We did a demonstration on TV a few years ago and you can see it on the video below.  

If you give it a try, let me know how it goes!
