Blanched Fried Almonds

My mother gave me this recipe years ago and it is a tasty treat. You can spice these up any way you creative. These would be a good Superbowl snack.

Put 2 cups or less almonds at a time in a bowl. Cover with boiling water. Let stand 5 minutes, then drain. Cover with cold water. Slip off the skins. Pat dry with a towel. Put butter or oil in a skillet, add 1 cup of nuts. Fry over low heat, stirring, until brown. Drain on paper towels. Add salt, spices, or any other flavoring you prefer.
