Honig brat Mandeln

This is a simple dessert recipe from Germany made from Almonds.Well,not much of a recipe as its very easy and also don't ask the pronouncication just enjoy the delicious sweet Honig brat Mandeln or Honey roasted almonds which I found from here.The dish takes around 15 minutes but less than that to be consumed.

Almonds: 1 cup

Honey: 1 tbsp
Water: 1 tbsp
Vegetable /Almond Oil: 1 tsp

Sugar: 4 tbsp granulated (I used a mix of powdered+granulated)
Salt: 1/4 tsp

Spread the almonds in a single layer on an ungreased baking sheet.Bake in a cold oven at 350F for 12-15 minutes stirring periodically,till it gets roasted and start turning brown.I stirred once only.Take out and let it cool outside on the baking sheet itself.

Meanwhile,mix together sugar and salt and pour half of it in a wide bowl.

In a saucepan, bring to boil,honey,water and oil.Add the slightly cooled almonds to it and let it simmer till the liquid is completely absorbed and the almonds acquire a glossy shine.This takes about 5-6 minutes.

The journey of almonds from the raw,roasted and the glossy stages can be seen like........

where the rightmost one is the raw almond.

Once the liquid is completely evaporated,immediately put the almonds in the bowl where sugar-salt mix is kept.Put the other half of the sugar mix on top of this,cover it with a lid and gently toss it so that the mix gets evently coated on the almonds.

The sweet,very slightly soft almonds with a perfect roasted taste are ready to be consumed.And a fresh bowl is on way to AWED:German an event by DK and currrently hosted by Lakshmi.
