Fried Almonds Recipe at
In a deep frying pan, pour in oil to a depth of 2 inches. Place over medium heat and heat to 350 degrees F on a deep-frying thermometer (or until an almond dropped into the oil sizzles immediately). Drop in a handful of the almonds and fry until golden, about 3 minutes.

Using a slotted spoon, transfer to paper towels to drain. Repeat with the remaining almonds. Season to taste with salt and with cayenne, if using, and serve warm.
