Seriously Delicious Smoked Almonds

Discussion in 'Fruit, Nuts & Vegetables' started by wntrlnd, Sep 7, 2010.

  1. Well, the first time I read the recipe Scarbelly posted, I knew i had to try smoking some almonds.

    I used raw almonds, and made two versions of his marinade, one with butter, one with bacon drippings.

    I smoked over almond wood at between 225 and 250-260 for a little over 2 hours.   I stirred the nuts and rotated the smoking pans several times during the smoke.

    I couldn't be happier with the results.  The nuts are thoroughly delicious with a really nice smoke flavor.



    They are both delcious.  The bacon ones are shinier because they were a little wetter coming out of the smoker.  They seem like they are retaining more of the marinade.  There's not a huge taste difference between the butter and bacon recipes, as far as I can tell. 

    I went longer than the recommended 90 minute smoke because I tasted them after 90 minutes and wanted more smoke and a toastier almond.  I watched them like a hawk and when they were tasting pretty good, I took them off and cooled them down pronto.

    Thanks, Scarbelly!  These were my first smoked nuts, but they certainly wn't be my last.
