Hi All;  Thought I would try my hand at smoking almonds this week.  I have been smoking cheese for the last six months and loving it, so I thought it was time to venture into something new. This is SO much easier than cheese !  Made my first batch yesterday... today those will be gone... SO...  i'm making another batch !  smokey, spicy, salty, sweet  HMM good !  10 minutes exactly in a salt water brine... 2 hours in a hickory - cherry smokey  wood fire, then mix in your spices (goat butter, honey,paprika,salt , garlic and chili powder.) Finish them off in the oven for 15 + minutes and don't burn yourself grabbing them off the pan!  Tomorrow, I'm thinking of  a longer (4 hr) smoke with hickory and salt only as a spice... Should be good !

I want some!! That just looks and sounds amazingly tasty. I am going to do that. We've got some apple wood from cutting down an old apple tree - would that wood work well?

Hi Tracy;  Yes, apple wood will work just fine.  The part about the oven is 350 F for 12-18 minutes with parchment paper on your baking tray, stir 3 times while finishing.

Thanks, Thomas! I've just put almonds on my shopping list. Can't wait to try this recipe out.
