I'm going to try using popcorn salt.  That is about as fine a textured salt as one can find.


I take my salt and place it in my mini processor. I use my Cuisinart Mini-Prep Plus Food Processor. A couple of pulses will turn it into a fine powder. On a side note, if you need confectionery sugar, and you have none on hand, it will turn granulated white sugar into confectionery with a few pulses.

I still have trouble getting the salt to stick to the almonds. I'm going to try using some lightly beaten egg white with the salt to see if it sticks.

I've done that and it works very well. I have the best success by smoking the almonds first, next using egg white to help the seasoning to adhere, then finishing in the kitchen oven.

I mix the salt with a bit of water into a slurry
And then mix it up with the almonds
Then dry them on low temp in the oven (convection)
Once dry they go into the bradley
