Almonds with Rosemary and Sea Salt

First: apologies for the gap between the Tasty Tuesday posts. Life got a little hectic, and cooking and photography took a bit of a time out (my husband is harassing me about the amount of Chipotle to-go bags in our recycle pile).

Second: this is one of my all-time favorite noshes to accompany a cheese tray (pairs exceedingly well with Manchego) or it’s nice on its own as a mid-morning snack.

I had a partial bag of almonds in the pantry and wanted to use them up….so this recipe is based on a small quantity. Double or triple as you please.
