Remember when gathering round the TV together was a family affair? Here’s a tasty snack to nosh on while watching your favorite program.

Yield: makes 1 Pound

Ingredients

  • 1 stick unsalted butter
  • 1 lb. raw almonds
  • Salt

Instructions

  1. Melt butter over very low heat until almost all the sizzling noises have stopped and white foam appears on the top. Pour the clear yellow butter through a tea strainer, and discard the solids. Set aside.
  2. Preheat oven to 375°. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Drop in almonds and cook for 1 minute. Drain. Squeeze almonds out of their skins (this is painstaking work), then place them in a single layer on a cookie sheet.
  3. Drizzle with clarified butter. Bake until lightly roasted, 10–15 minutes. Sprinkle with salt and serve.
