These are excellent in salads (if they ever make it there)
2½ cups unblanched whole almonds (13 oz)
1¼ cups granulated sugar
⅓ cup water
1 teaspoon cinnamon
Heat oven to 350º. Toast almonds for 15 minutes on a baking sheet.
In a medium saucepan, combine sugar, water almonds and cinnamon. Cook, stirring constantly, until sugar becomes golden and granular and almonds are completely coated and separated. Pour nuts onto cooling rack over a cookie sheet and separate.
