Ingredients: 1/2 Kg of sugar 1/2 of almonds the juice of 1/2 lemon, caramelised aniseed

Place the mixture on a slab of marble greased slightly with butter or refined oil, sprinkle with caramelised aniseed and roll out with a rolling pin (also greased with butter or oil) until it acquires an even thickness of about two centimetres. Cut into even strips of about 2.5 by 10 cm, before it cools.
