Burnt Nuts

I went shopping for some more groceries to make another batch of Gypsy Soup, and I found a 1kg bag of almonds in the baking section for $12.99... such a good deal, so I bought it! When I got them home I opened the bag, and realized they were raw almonds (soft in the middle) so I figured I could dry roast them myself, in the oven! I googled how to roast almonds and found this great site. I followed the instructions but thought that cooking them only 10 minutes left the almonds still soft in the middle. I decided to put them back in... but for WAY TOO LONG, and ended up burning them! (...Probably 3 quarters of the bag! DUMB ME!)

Oh well... live and learn!

Maybe I should just stick to buying the dry roasted ones... (despite the fact that they cost twice as much!)

I've thrown out some overroasted nuts myself...you could just try again (and leave your nuts in the oven for a shorter period of time) BWAHAHAHA

Learning is such a wasteful process!

I think the nuts in the raw are MUCH more healthy for you... get used to liking them raw sissy!
