  1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees. In a medium mixing bowl, toss together the almonds, salt, and spices.  Set aside.
  2. In a separate mixing bowl, whisk the egg white with a fork or metal whisk until foamy.
  3. Add egg white to almonds a little at a time until almonds appear glazed and shiny and the seasonings have begun to stick to the almonds.
  4. Bake almonds on a cookie sheet for 2 hours or until they achieve desired level of crispness.

Chef Tips

You don’t need to waste the egg yolk. Just add it to an omelet or some scrambled eggs. Line your cookie sheet with parchment paper for easier clean-up and handling.
