Glazed almonds

These are based on a recipe for teriyaki almonds in a great book ‘Vegeatarian Party Food’ which is sadly out of print. These are a great snack for a drinks party.

Pre-heat your oven to 200 degrees C / 400 F. In a bowl mix about 250-300g of almonds with 1tbsp of honey, 1 tbsp dark soy sauce, a slash of alcohol sherry or masala are fine, today I used whiskey (the original recipe uses mirin) a pinch or two of sea salt and about 3 tbsp of sesame seeds (I used a mix of black and white). Mix everything together then spread the almonds on a baking sheet covered in baking parchment. Put the in the oven and after 5 mins, give them a stir and turn the oven down down to 150 degrees C / 300 F. Bake for another 15 – 20 mins turning them a couple of times. They will become sticky and go golden brown. Alom them to cool and they will become brilltle. Break them up and put them in a bowl and enjoy!
