450 g almonds
450 g sugar
225 ml water
1 tsp ground cinnamon
125 ml rose water
Oil for greasing
- Preheat oven to gas mark 6/200º C. Rub the almonds with a dry cloth. Bring sugar and water to the boil and add the cinnamon. Stir in the almonds and simmer for 20 minutes. Cool for 1 minute then add the rose water.
- Return to the heat and cook until the sugar is completely dissolved and sticks to the almonds. This will take about 5 minutes. Line 2 baking sheets with greased aluminum foil. Pour the almonds onto the foil and separate them very quickly with two forks.
- Place the baking trays in the preheated oven for 5 minutes to glaze the almonds. Remove the almonds from the oven and leave to cool.
- Note: Should the sugar crust fall of the almonds, bring the sugar to the boil with two tbsp water and repeat the process.
