Spiced Candied AlmondsMADE BY TREAT BAKE SHOP IN MILWAUKEE, WISCONSIN
The unassuming name and minimal ingredient list belie the complex flavors in this dainty, little pouch. Sure, we’ve had sugared and spiced nuts before, but there’s something different about these almonds that we just can’t seem to put our finger on. Is it the sesame seeds? A little ground coriander? Cumin? We know, garam masala! Hmmm. Is it the zip from the red pepper flakes? Better taste another.
This bewitching blend of spices isn’t maker Sarah Marx Feldner’s only secret. Somehow she’s cracked the code on both the ideal nut-to-coating ratio and how to keep the almonds snappy. She’s got a gift, people–and now you do too.
