traditional badge2_thumb[1]Roasted almonds are a traditional Norwegian Christmas treats that taste of childhood. The almonds has a roasted flavour and gets a thin layer of caramel that melts on the tongue. One chew and you’re hooked!

If you want to make roasted almonds you must use some elbow grease. Use a big pot, then the almonds want get so easily burnt. If you use a cast iron pot it will be even easier. A teaspoon or two of cinnamon makes the almonds extra Christmassy and you can try adding other flavours as well.

    Retro recipes are great, and so is anything with nuts. It’s always good to have some flavoured nuts to pass around at a party. Thanks for bringing them along to Fiesta Friday.
