Procedure

  1. Toast the almonds in a 350ºF (180ºC) oven for about 10 minutes, stirring frequently until they are light brown.
  2. Boil the sugar and water in a small saucepan until the sugar turns golden brown.
  3. Immediately sir in the almonds.
  4. Reheat until liquid and pour onto the baking sheet.
  5. When cold (about 10 minutes), break it into pieces
  6. Pulverize in a blender or clean coffee grinder a few pieces at a time.
