Tamari-and-Maple-Roasted Almonds


These tangy glazed nuts go perfectly with a glass of sherry.

  • Servings: 6
  • Yield: Makes 2 cups

Source: Martha Stewart Living, October 2003


  • 10 ounces whole shelled almonds
  • 1/4 cup reduced-sodium tamari
  • 3 tablespoons pure maple syrup
  • Nonstick cooking spray


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spread almonds in a single layer on a rimmed baking sheet, and bake until lightly toasted and fragrant, 7 to 8 minutes.

  2. In a medium bowl, combine tamari and maple syrup. Add almonds, and toss until thoroughly coated. Lightly cover the baking sheet with cooking spray, and spread almonds evenly on sheet.

  3. Roast in oven until deep brown, stirring once, 15 to 17 minutes. Immediately transfer to a clean baking sheet, and spread out almonds, separating so nuts don't touch. Let cool before serving.

    I love Martha's recipes and usually have great success with them. Not the case here. I chose this recipe for one of my appetizers for Thanksgiving last year. I made a batch and had to throw the whole thing out because it was burnt to a crisp. Something is off about either the cooking time and/or oven temperature. Please retest this recipe and correct it - I don't want anyone else to experience what I and the rest of the reviewers here did!

    You guys need to review and retest your recipe. I reduced the time and they still burnt. Wasted almonds and time and the pan is almost uncleanable... Happy Holidays...LOL The review is serious, however. They were awful.

    These burned after 8 minutes and I had stirred them once already. The amount of time to roast after the tamari/maple syrup mixture is added seems way off. 15-17 minutes? And I did use real maple syrup; never the fake stuff.

    Obviously whoever didn't like these didn't do a good job of cooking them right, or you chose to use imitation maple syrup which is not the same at all. These are absolutely amazing!

    Made these exactly as directed, with high hopes. However, they were truly awful. The flavors combined into a bitter, not-at-all maple, mess. Waste of good almonds.

    Is the oven setting too high? Mine burned even though I roasted them for only 10 minutes.
