MAPLE GHOST PEPPER ALMONDS
What to do with my maple ghost pepper syrup was a good question. How about we make some crunchy sweet/hot flavored almonds? This was my idea and it was a winner. The recipe could not be simpler. Coat a pound of almonds with about a quarter a cup of flavored maple syrup and place on a parchment lined baking sheet. Salt to taste. Put into a 350 degree oven for approx 15 minutes. (Be very careful and check at 10 minutes because they will burn quickly) Let cool, break apart and store in refrigerator.
Wow, this is an addicting snack. The Ghost Pepper heat is not overpowering when used in this manner. It is the perfect heat to sweet ratio. This simple recipe is a keeper. By the way Ghost Pepper Maple syrup can be found at Trader Joe;s. (Trader Joe's; 'The store that has everything you have always wanted but do not need')
