Ginger-Glazed Almonds with Dried Fruit

Ginger-Glazed Almonds with Dried Fruit


  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons packed light brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons peeled and finely grated fresh ginger
  • 3/4 teaspoons kosher salt or sea salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 cup whole blanched or natural almonds
  • Cooking spray
  • 1 cup dried berries, cherries, cranberries, mango, apricot, apple, pear, or other dried fruit



Preheat oven to 300°F.  Melt butter in a large skillet on medium heat.  Stir in sugar, water, fresh ginger, salt and ground ginger.  Cook until sugar dissolves.  Stir in almonds, and remove from heat.  Line a baking sheet with foil, and coat with cooking spray.  Spread almonds onto foil, and bake 25 to 35 minutes, stirring once, until almonds are golden (cut one open to test).  Transfer almonds on foil to a rack and cool completely.  Loosen with a spatula and combine with dried fruit.  Store mixture airtight for up to 3 days.
