Smoked Almonds

  1. Howdy all!

    So, I'm in the midst of smoking/drying my jalapenos for chipotles and decided I needed to smoke some almonds today...

    I used a modified Nepas recipe.

    Smoked 'em for just under 2 hours @ 225*. When they were finished I separated them into .5lb bags took 4 of those and a little plastic container into work with the idea of selling the .5lb bags. Sold all 4...2 bags to my boss (an RN/Clinical Manager), 1 bag to the Administrative Manager and 1 bag to or Head Dr./Medical Director. The almonds blew them away...they could not believe I made them. I didn't tell them how easy they were on the TEFS! I had the Dr. try a few from my little plastic container...he thought they we great...I offered him a bag, he promptly said "yes"!

    I love having people try the things that I make! Better yet, too have them purchasing the things I make...even better!

    I also had another RN (who has a BGE, she matter of factly told me!) She had no idea these could be made on a smoker...caught her grabbing multiple samples from my little plastic container...MuuWaaahhhaahahahaa!

    So tomorrow I smoke a few more lbs...


    Keep Smokin'

  6. If you search 'smoked almonds' there will be a recipe posted by Scarbelly! That's the one I used! It's awesome! I used 1/2 hickory and 1/2 maple!

    Smoking Almonds as we speak. I made a paste out of Tamari sauce and wasabi soaked for 2 hours. Smoking for 2 hours at 225 with Hickory.
