Ingredients for 4 people 1 cup of almonds (unpeeled) 1 cup of sugar 1 cup of water
Wash the almonds and put them in a bowl with the sugar and water. Stir to mix and let them rest for 24 hours. When it is time to do them, put them on the heat in a thick-bottomed saucepan (the ideal thing is to make them in a copper saucepan or pan).Stir them occasionally with a wooden spoon. When a bit of the water has been taken up and the froth turns a whitish colour, stir them without stopping, scraping the sides of the pan or saucepan with the spoon until they are dry. When they are almost dry it is a good idea to take them off the heat and to finish the process until they do not stick to one another. Tip them on to marble or a similar surface, separate them and let them cool. They keep for quite a long time in jars or sealed containers.
Prepare them in glass pots for serving.
