It was no wonder then when I came across this idea of pairing Cinnamon with nuts,I fell for it.A while back,during a party a friend brought along a bunch of candied nuts.I am not so much a nuts person,so believe me when I tell you,those nuts were damn addictive.Especially the almonds.I wanted to recreate it and searched for a recipe.
These sugared almonds are indeed a breeze to make and takes just under 20 minutes from start to finish.How cool is that?
As a kid,I used to relish sugared cashews which were made by making a sugar syrup first with strings and then nuts added to it which created a lovely sugar coating all around the cashews.This one is pretty similar,with less work and an added flavor of cinnamon.I hope you do try it out for your next party!
Cinnamon Sugared Almonds
Recipe source - AllRecipes
Almonds - 1 cup
Sugar - 1/2 cup
Water - 1/4 cup
Cinnamon - 1 tsp
In a non stick kadai,mix together sugar,water and cinnamon and let it come to a boil.
Mix in the almonds.Stir and cook the mixture till the sugar syrup thickens and coats the nuts evenly.
Grease a plate and pour the nuts into it.Separate almonds using forks and let it cool down for about 15 minutes.
These Sugared Almonds taste delicious warm and in room temperature as well.Store in an airtight container once completely cool.Planning to try a mixed version,like I tasted,next time :)
