Tucos' Almond & Raisin Mix- World's Most Complex Trail Mix

Almond.jpgA Tucos favorite.  The almonds are non-pareils from Andrew Scoffield's orchard in Arbukle.  We blanch them, roast them in our Saloio olive oil, and toss them in kosher salt, crushed red pepper and fresh rosemary.  Then they're mixed in with our jumbo golden raisins from the Davis Farmers' Market.  Interesting story on the almond raisin mix- we've always served these (separately) as a part of the cheese plate. One day when we were looking for ways to save space on the plate we combined them into one small dish.  When we tasted them together we found that magical combination we're always looking for when the sum is greater than the parts.  The sweet, salty, spicy, crunchy, chewy contrast with the overtones of pungent rosemary make this a really cool snack. I'll go out on a limb and call this the world's most complex trail mix!
