Coconut Almonds

Coconut Almonds

You can never have too many bowls of nuts

sitting around during the cocktail hour and

we love these! Cristina, our housekeeper in

San Cristobal, would retrieve a fresh coconut

from the market, crack it, and grind the meat

to make these memorable spiced nuts.

¼ cup of brown sugar

½ cup of fresh ground or flaked coconut

2 teaspoons of curry powder

¼ teaspoon of chili powder

1 large egg white, whipped

1 pound of almonds

Add almonds to a bowl with the whipped egg white.

Then, add the first four ingredients and toss well.

Turn out in a single layer on a cookie sheet and

roast until golden at 300 degrees for twenty to

twenty five minutes. Cool until nuts crisp.
