At the beginning I just wanted to write a post with some photos of the sweet I made last weekend adding then a link to an external recipes’ site. Searching for the recipe I found there are not actually sites with the real italian one, the one mabe by my grandma, so here it is.
- preparation time: 30 min
- Ready in: 2 h
- Ingredients: For this recipe you need the same quantity of sugar and almonds and one orange. I made my brittle with 100 g of sugar and 100 g of almonds (this quantity is for 3 people).
Take a piece of greaseproof paper and put it on a flat surface.
Put your almonds for some minutes in your oven at medium heat on a baking pan, just a couple of minutes.
While your almonds are in the oven, put the sugar in a small heavy saucepan over medium heat, where it will start dissolving. Use a spoon to stirring it until it has the color of the honey.
When the sugar is dissolved and has the right color, take your almonds and put them in the saucepan and stir for 10 seconds, they will make a funny crackle.
Put this mixture onto your prepared sheet and use the orange to roll out the mixture. The orange gives to your brittle an amazing scent. Leave it rest for half an hour and then break it into pieces.
HEHEHE, I’m eating the brittle while I’m writing…it’s amazing!
