Categories : Appetizers Nuts

Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
1 tablespoon black pepper
2 teaspoons salt
1/4 cup butter -- (1/2 stick)
3/4 cup golden brown sugar -- (packed)
4 teaspoons water
2 2/3 cups blanched whole almonds

Preheat oven to 350°F. Line large baking sheet with foil. Lightly butter foil. Mix pepper and salt in small bowl. Melt butter in large nonstick skillet over medium-low heat. Add sugar and 4 teaspoons water; stir until sugar dissolves. Add almonds; toss to coat. Cook over medium heat until syrup thickens and almonds are well coated, stirring occasionally, about 5 minutes. Sprinkle half of pepper mixture over.
Transfer almonds to baking sheet. Using spatula and working quickly, separate almonds. Sprinkle remaining pepper mixture over. Bake until deep golden brown, about 10 minutes. Transfer sheet to rack; cool. (Can be made 4 days ahead. Store airtight at room temperature.)
Makes 2 2/3 cups

Dawn's Note: Work with these quickly to separate, but not too much. If you manipulate them too much, the coating has a tendency to fall off. These are addictive, and you can use any nut you would like. I have used almonds and pecans with great success.
