Rosemary Spiced Almonds
Recipe by Dragon
Here's another spicy snack that is perfect with a cocktail or a glass of wine before dinner. The amount of heat (cayenne) you add is up to you but I dare you to be brave. The heat from the cayenne is a warm, smoky heat so it won't leave your mouth burning. The addition of rosemary gives these almonds a wonderful scent and savoury flavour. Enjoy!
