  • I didn’t have dried lemon peel so I just used a little grated lemon rind. These were wonderful and a huge hit a dinner party- it’s amazing how much better they taste than store bought roasted almonds.

    • Great substitute Maria! So glad they were a hit at your dinner party. It is amazing.. just a few tweaks and you have something pretty amazing to serve your guests! :)
