  • 1

    Spread the almonds in a single layer in a shallow ungreased baking pan and place in cold oven.

  • 2

    Bake at 350° F degrees, stirring occasionally, until the color of the nuts are a light tan, 12 to 15 minutes.

  • 3

    Remember that the nuts will continue roast a little more after they are removed from the oven, so a little under roasted is better than over roasted.

  • 4

    Set the roasted almonds aside.

  • 5

    Thoroughly mix the sugar and salt.

  • 6

    Stir together the honey, water and oil in a medium-size saucepan and bring to a boil over medium heat.

  • 7

    Stir in the roasted almonds and continue to cook and stir until all of the liquid has been absorbed by the nuts, about 5 minutes.

  • 8

    Working quickly transfer the almonds to a medium-size bowl into which some sugar mixture has been sprinkled. Sprinkle the remaining sugar mixture over the almonds and toss until they are evenly coated.

  • 9

    Spread the almonds out on wax paper and let cool completely.

  • 10

    When cool, store at room temperature in a tightly covered container or plastic bag for up to two weeks.
