These cookies are easy and fun to make, and the gem-like colors of the fruit preserves make them great for holiday celebrations. Use a variety of Mediterranean Organics Fruit Preserves to create a rainbow of colors and fruity flavors. Makes about 2 dozen.
¾ cup pitted dates
3 cups Country Choice Organic Old Fashioned Oats (aka quick oats)
A touch of Alter Eco Mascobado Cane Sugar added to KOYO Organic Tamari Sauce makes a rich, salty coating for whole almonds. These Tamari almonds are always a big hit at holiday parties. A hand-packed jar makes a tasteful hostess gift. Total preparation time: 75 minurtes. Makes 6 cups.
6 cups (2 lbs.) whole almonds with skin
1/2 cup KOYO Tamari Sauce
1/2 teaspoon Alter Eco Cane Sugar
Place oven racks on the upper and lower third rack slots.
Preheat oven to 300°F.
Divide almonds in half.
Spread almond out in one layer on two large, shallow baking pans.
Bake 15 minutes.
Stir together Tamari and sugar in a large heatproof bowl until sugar is dissolved.
Add hot almonds and stir until coated well.
Let stand 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Return almonds to baking pans with a slotted spoon, spreading them evenly.
Discard any liquid remaining in bowl.
Bake almonds about 25 minutes, stirring and switching position of pans halfway through baking, until almonds are dark brown outside and golden inside—cut an almond in half to check color.
Cool almonds completely in pans on racks about 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Transfer to an airtight container.
Cooled almonds can be placed in small gift bags or jars. Almonds kept in an airtight container at room temperature stay fresh up to 2 weeks.
