Lavender Marcona Almonds

Lavender Marcona Almonds

These sugary, salty, fatty almonds are how diners can begin a meal at Jeremy Fox's Rustic Canyon. Thanks to a tactical addition of lavender, your guests will actually talk about them.


  • 1 tablespoon dried lavender
  • 1 pound toasted Marcona almonds (about 4 cups)

Special Equipment

  • A spice mill or a mortar and pestle

Recipe Preparation

  • Finely grind lavender in a spice mill or with a mortar and pestle (you should have about 2 tsp.).

  • Preheat oven to 300°. Toast almonds on a rimmed baking sheet, stirring once, until golden, 15 minutes. Let cool, then transfer to a large bowl. Drizzle with oil and toss to coat. Sprinkle with sugar, lavender, and salt and toss again to coat.
