    Ok this is the first go round with nuts. I would like to thank Debi for the recipe in advance. I used the one labeled Hot and Spicy Pecans but used almonds and they were just right. (not to hot) I will definetly be doing again in the near future. I had tbs for 1hr and cooked 1.5hrs after that at 220 degrees.

    Nice lookin' Almonds!

    I just bought some cans of almonds this week to do the same thing this weekend; Don't mind if I travel on your coat tails do ya?[​IMG]

    Couple questions (Pipe in Mom, if your still online....):
    I see that you had them at 220 for 2.5 hours? Most of the recipes I see call for much less time than this. Do you feel that 2.5 hours the right amount?
    Also, I was thinking about using bacon grease in place of the butter....for no other reason than....well, bacon makes everything better, right? Think this would be a good pairing, or leave well enough alone and go for the butta?

    Thanks

    Hmm what would a good price be, Debi? I see them raw shelled anywhere from 3 to 8/Lb.

    I smoked a small batch of almonds the other day using a simple brine of 1 cup of water and 1 TBL of Tony Chachers's. I brined them for 2 hours then let them dry before smoking them for 2 hours at 250º using kirk walnut wood. Then I nuked them for about 2 minutes to get them crunchy. They turned out pretty good. We have always nuked them without brine and smoke in the past but not any longer...

    Thank you all for your responses. I found almonds at www.Almonds-from-California.com They were $60.00 for 10lbs. including shipping. That was cheaper for raw than I found here in Maryland.
