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.
