Recipe: Rosemary Roasted Almonds

Rosemary Roasted Almonds.

We attended a Pinot and Poppies party at a family friends' home last weekend. You may guess that we drank pinot surrounded by our California state flower...and you'd be right! In addition to the vino and little orange flowers, we also enjoyed taking bites from the gorgeous cheese plates they prepared. One of my favorite things on the plate was the rosemary roasted almonds and so I decided to raid some herbs from our garden and make my own.

2 cups raw, whole almonds.
Rosemary in our garden.
Rosemary sprigs.
Seasoned almonds.
Nicely toasted almonds.
