Directions

  1. Pour all the ingredients in a tall pot and put on the stove at medium flame.
  2. Continuously and slowly turn all the ingredients with a wooden spoon.
  3. The sugar will melt... you are not done. Continue to turn.
  4. The sugar will then crystallize again... and you still are not done. Continue to turn.
  5. The sugar will melt one more time and once it is completely melted and it is of amber color, remove the pot from the flame and pour the content on a sheet of aluminum foil. The entire cooking process is about 20 minutes.
  6. With a spatula quickly flatten the hot almonds to form a sheet about 3/4" thick.
  7. Let it cool for about 5 minutes and with a large knife cut the entire sheet in squares of about 2"  on each side.
  8. Remove the aluminum foil from all the pieces and let them completely cool off.
