ALMONDS IN CARAMEL

These caramelised nuts are delicious on their own or as an ingredient for icecreams and cookies. These can be made and stored in a container, they can be crushed slightly or into a fine powder and used. I will be sharing some of the recipes to use these nuts with.
I learnt how to make these perfectly in a cooking workshop which i attended in valencia by Soy Vital, prime distributors of dry fruits.
They came out perfectly and its easy 🙂
INGREDIENTS:
1 cup of whole peeled unroasted almonds, or any nuts of your choice (please use the same cup for the rest of the ingredients)
1/2 cup of white sugar
1/4 cup of water
a pinch of salt
a little oil to grease the tray you are going to put the nuts on
METHOD:
Put the sugar and water to boil in a pan. When you see it bubbling away after 3 minutes add the almonds and continue to cook till you see the water evaporating and the sugar crystalising. Continue to stir carefully and you will see the sugar changing color and melting. Continue stirring untill the whole mixture is a light caramel brown color. Pour it into a greased tray and try to separate them with a fork. Put your pan to soak in hot water so you can clean it properly. Leave the nuts to cool. Once cooled they will separate easily. If you want to make crocanti just put them into a blender and powder them to the consistency you like.
Here is a picture of the powdered nuts which you can use as icecream toppings or in cookies

Here is another way of making them
