Homemade Smoky Almonds

  • Two cups whole raw almonds
  • One-quarter cup butter
  • One tablespoon seasoned salt
  • Two teaspoons white sugar
  • One-half teaspoon onion powder


Melt the butter in a skillet, add the almonds and stir. Remove from heat and cover. Stir a bit every minute or so for 10 minutes.

Place the salt, sugar and onion powder in a spice grinder, clean coffee grinder or blender and pulverize until it becomes a fine powder.

The finer the dry ingredients, the better they'll stick to the almonds.

Dump the almonds in a colander and strain off the melted butter.

Spread them out in a baking sheet and coat with the salt mixture. (use a pan that will fit in your smoker. I use a pizza pan)

Smoke at about 225 degrees with a light flavored wood like apple or alder until the nuts are lightly toasted.

Remove and allow to cool. Store in an airtight container.

This smoked almond recipe makes about two cups, which can go pretty fast. Better make a double recipe!
