What pairs well with Sweet Sriracha Almonds?
Sweet Sriracha Almonds are something you will want to serve at your next gathering. They are sweet, spicy and pair well with cheese and wine. I love putting them on a charcuterie board or serving them next to an Antipasto Plate or some Pimento Cheese. They are quite easy to make and can be made ahead of time.
How do you store these roasted nuts?
If you make these roasted almonds ahead of time, store them in air tight plastic containers. As any roasted nuts will get stale if they are left out. Tightly wrapping them in plastic bags works well too. For best freshness, I like to eat them within a few weeks however they never seem to last that long in my house.
Tips for making these sweet and spicy roasted almonds:
- Make sure to use raw almonds in this recipe. Already roasted ones might get too well done.
- Line your baking sheet with parchment paper. I buy the pre cut sheets. This makes for very easy clean up.
- Use a small wire whisk to mix the liquid ingredients together. This insures that everything will mix together well.
- Keep an eye on baking these almonds. Sugar and honey can burn quickly. You don't want them too overdone.
