Ingredients
  

  • 2 cups sliced almonds
  • 1 Tbsp butter
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • brown sugar
  • kosher salt

Instructions
 

  • Saute almond slices in a large skillet in butter and Olive oil over medium heat
  • Sprinkle the nuts liberally with brown sugar and Kosher salt.
  • The brown sugar will melt and caramelize on the nuts. Stir often and watch carefully so the nuts don’t burn. Don't walk away, this literally only takes 3-4 minutes
  • When they have begun to brown turn out onto wax paper or foil to cool. Store in a jar in your pantry or freezer. Makes 2 cups.

Notes

I buy the almonds in bulk at Costco and keep the big bag in the freezer. I make a fresh jar of these every few weeks to be handy for cooking.
