Sugared Lavender Almonds

  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil

Finely grind lavender and sugar together with a mortar and pestle or a spice mill. If a food processor or blender is what you have at hand, either will also do the job.

Preheat oven to 300. Place raw almonds on a rimmed baking sheet. Similar recipes might call for you to peel the almonds. If you have the time and prefer your almonds peeled, go for it. We don't find this step makes a marked difference.

Slowly roast the almonds, stirring once, until lightly browned. This takes about 15 minutes.

Let the toasted almonds cool until just warm and transfer them to a large bowl.

Drizzle with oil and mix to coat. Sprinkle the lavender and sugar over the almonds and mix until thoroughly distributed. 

While you can certainly eat them right away, we suggest covering them and allowing the oils and flavors to infuse for 24 hours. This delicious snack will easily keep for a couple of weeks in an airtight container. In fact, we think the flavor improves with time!
