HOW TO MAKE TOASTED ALMONDS WITH LEMON & THYME
FIRST: Preheat oven to 300F. Place almonds on a baking sheet in a single layer.
SECOND: Toast for 30 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes. Watch carefully! If you smell the almonds, they are ready. When toasted, place in a mixing bowl.
THIRD: Combine olive oil, lemon juice, and lemon zest in a small bowl. Pour over the toasted almonds and stir to combine.
FOURTH: I pour the almonds onto a paper towel after a few minutes to soak up the excess olive oil. Store in an air-tight container until you eat them all or for a week, whichever comes first.
