Buttery Almonds

Pour boiling water over fresh almond meats. Let them stand for ten minutes or until the skins can be easily stripped off. Dry the almond meats between the folds of a clean dish towel. Put them in a baking pan with a teaspoonful of melted butter and turn them over and over until they are well coated. Then place them in the oven stirring occasionally so that they will brown evenly. A sprinkle of salt next, and sift them in a colander to dislodge superfluous salt or butter. Cool and keep in a dry place.
California almonds are a delightful delicacy any way they are used whether in cake or candy or to increase the savory relish of your turkey dressing.
