Rating (3 ratings)


250 g almonds, blanched
250 g Dansukker Granulated Sugar
0,75 ml water
peel of 1 untreated orange
1/2 tbsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp ground cardamom
1/2 tsp ground ginger


Add the almonds, granulated sugar, water, orange peel and spices to a saucepan. Turn the heat up high until the water boils and the mass starts to bubble. Stir often using a fork.
Reduce the heat until the water has completely evaporated and the sugar has re-crystallised.
The sugar should melt but only such that it forms clumps around the nuts.
Tip the almonds out onto greaseproof paper and separate using a fork.
