Roasting almonds at home

Bliss149 | Mar 17, 201801:42 PM     12

This seems like it would be easy but they are not coming out right.

I became addicted to the canned Salt and Vinegar ones and decided to make them myself. I roast pecans in the oven every week with no problems.

The almonds I’ve had these problem with:

First try - not crunchy. Got them at Kroger bulk section so thought maybe they just old.

Second try - overcooked and Burnt tasting

Third try - soft and not crunchy again. Undercooked I’m guessing

ALL 3 times - seasoning would not stick to them despite tossing them in coconut oil.

Can anyone help or should I give up and go back to the canned ones?
