Ginger Cumin Almonds


  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon sea or kosher salt
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • a dash or two of hot sauce
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 1/2 cups whole almonds, with skins


  1. In a large bowl, combine cumin, ginger, salt, oil, hot sauce, and honey. Add almonds and toss to coat. Spread in a single layer on a baking sheet with sides and lined with parchment paper. Bake at 300 degrees for 30-40 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes, or until lightly glazed.
  2. Cool in pan or on a wire rack. Store in an air-tight container.


  • For a little extra punch of that salty/sweet flavor, sprinkle with a pinch or two of course sugar and kosher or sea salt upon removing from oven.
