Renaissance Cinnamon Almonds

If you’ve ever been to the Renaissance Festival then you have probably had their cinnamon roasted almonds. I found a recipe for them on Pinterest of course, and decided to try it out. I had no idea if this was going to work but figured I didn’t have anything to lose.

So I gathered my supplies:

Crock pot
Crock pot liners
Dry, unsalted almonds 3 cups
Vanilla 1.5 tsp
Cinnamon 3 tbs
Salt 1/8 tsp
Sugar 1.5 cups
1 egg white

First thing is first, line your crock pot so that you don’t have a cinnamon-y mess when done. IMG_3851I first mixed the dry ingredients together in a bowl and set it aside. Then I combined the egg white and the vanilla. Next, mix in the almonds with the vanilla and egg white mixture making sure that the almonds are all coated. Once they are all coated pour the dry mixture in and mix well.

 

 

 

 

 

They should look like this when everything is mixed together right before you pour it in to the crock pot.IMG_3852 Then they cook on high for 2 hours. Here is where you need to really pay attention. Mix the almonds every 20 minutes so as to keep them from burning through the liner. After two hours are up they come out wonderfully toasted and candy coated and your home smells delicious. I can say that these taste very much like the almonds you find at the Renaissance Fair, except much more budget friendly, and you can eat the whole thing by yourself (unless you make them as gifts and give them away). That just means another batch is on it’s way!
