Harry Potter; Weasleys' Dragon Roasted Nuts
  • ½ tsp ground cumin
  • ½ tsp cayenne pepper
  • ½ tsp ground cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp chilli powder
  • 3 tsp brown sugar
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 cup almonds
  • 1 egg white
  1. Preheat your oven to 250F/120C.
  2. On a baking tray, lay out a sheet of baking paper on top (or oil it. The almonds can really stick!)
  3. In one bowl, mix together your spices, sugar and salt.
  4. In another bowl, beat the egg white a few times.
  5. Add the almonds to the egg white, and using a fork, stir until all the almonds are coated.
  6. Transfer the almonds to the spice mix. I'd transfer using my clean hands, as I often have leftover egg white in the bowl.
  7. Using a fork, stir the almonds in the spice mix until fully coated.
  8. Transfer the coated almonds to the baking tray, and spread the almonds out, so they're not overlapping each other.
  9. Bake in the oven for about 50 minutes. You can cook them at a higher temperature, but only if you're watching them closely. They burn easily!
