This recipe works great with our Lavender Rainbow Pepper Blend. Use it in a grinder. You can also combine culinary lavender and peppercorns yourself.
Lavender Peppered Almonds
Makes 2 1/2 cups
1 1/2 tablespoon ground lavender black pepper
2 teaspoons salt
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 tablespoon water
2 1/2 cup whole almonds
Combine lavender pepper and salt in a small bowl.
Melt butter in a large saucepan or skillet over medium heat. Once melted, add the brown sugar and water.
Stir until sugar has fully disolved. Add almonds & toss to coat.
Continue to cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until syrup thickens - this should take about 5 minutes. Sprinkle half of the lavender pepper mixture over the almonds.
Transfer almonds to the lined baking sheet. Spread the almonds into a single layer & sprinkle with your remaining pepper mixture over top.
Bake for about 15-20 minutes until the almonds are deep, golden brown. Allow the almonds to cool completely and then break them up and serve! Store in an airtight container.
