Chef's Notes

Choice ingredient:  Cinnamon-coated almonds are great to use for embellishing recipes that only need a few ingredients. Try them on desserts like ice-cream sundaes or as part of sweet-and-savory recipes such as salads. Look for the almonds either with the other nuts in your supermarket or near the produce section.
