Smoked Almonds

Comment on this recipe

Ingredients

1-1/2 teaspoons water
1-1/2 teaspoons liquid smoke
1 teaspoon soy sauce
1 cup shelled raw almonds

Instructions

Mix the water, liquid smoke and soy sauce in an 8-inch shallow glass dish or a 9- or 10-inch glass pie plate. Add the almonds to the liquid and stir them around until coated with the marinade. Cover tightly with plastic wrap and let them stand several hours or overnite. Remove the plastic wrap and cover lightly with wax paper. Microwave on high for 2 minutes, stir, cook 2 more minutes, stir, and cook 2 more minutes. You may want to cut down on the cooking time if they are too crisp (as this will depend upon the power of your microwave oven).
