Tangy Persian Candied Almonds Roasted with Lime: Submitted by: Purnima | Date Added: 2 Apr 2016 Ingredients:

1½ cups raw almonds
¼ cup granulated white sugar
? cup lime juice (about 3 limes)
1 tablespoon salt
1 tablespoon honey
½ cup water

Cooking Instructions:

Have a saute pan and small sauce pan on the stove and a colander at hand.

Combine the sugar, ½ tablespoon salt, honey and water in the small saucepan and heat over medium heat.

Stir over the heat until the solids dissolve and the mixture thickens - about 8-10 minutes.

Toss the almonds in the mixture to coat.

With a potholder, strain the sauce into the saucepan and let the almonds sit in the colander over the saucepan to catch excess drippings.

Add the lime juice to the sauce and cook over medium heat for about 10 minutes until reduced.

Add in the almonds and cook, continuously stirring for another 5 minutes until the sauce has caramelized.

Spread your almonds (they're hot!) over a sheet of wax paper, doing your best to separate them out.

Sprinkle with remaining salt and let cool. Enjoy!
