I love all of the jerky seasonings Walton’s offers and was thinking of ways I could incorporate those flavors into snacks that weren’t solely meat based. Looking at the ingredients I realized that they are essentially concentrated seasoning salt.
Today I picked up some raw almonds with the intent of giving them the gigawatt treatment. The results were fantastic! This is how I did it…
Preheat oven to 375
1 1/2 lbs RAW Almonds (raw is very important)
2 TBL Gigawatt Jerky Seasoning
1/4 C boiling water
2 TBL quality Olive Oil
Kosher Salt to taste
Dissolve the seasoning into the boiling water and combine with the almonds in a mixing bowl. Spread the almonds onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and bake for 8 minutes. Remove from oven, return to bowl and toss with olive oil. Sprinkle with kosher salt to suit your taste or simply leave as is…they have plenty of flavor. Allow almonds to completely cool in the bowl or return to the baking sheet to speed up the process. They will seem rubbery just out of the oven but once cool they will retain their crunch.
This recipe can be adapted to any nut of your choosing. I’m going to try pepitas next.
