Brente mandler ( Burnt sugar almonds )

Here is a recipe for a quick and easy Christmas treat that is very popular in Norway - Brente mandler. Also known as garrapinyades, caramelised almonds, or burnt sugar almonds.

250 g almonds
100 g sugar
1dl water

- Cook everything together on medium heat. Best to use a cast iron pot, and wooden spoon.
- At first the water will bubble, then the sugar will crystallise, stir continually till the sugar melt again.
- Remove from heat, and spread the caramelised almonds on a sheet of baking paper, use two forks to separate them.
- Wait till they are cooled down, before storing  in an airtight container.
