Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 300 grams almonds
  • 350 grams sugar

Directions

  1. Blanch the almonds in boiling water for 2 to 3 minutes, then peel them, dry them with paper towels, place them on a baking sheet and bake them at 180C for 5 minutes to toast them, without browning them.
  2. In the meantime, place the sugar in a medium saucepan with the water and the lemon juice and cook on low heat, stirring occasionally with a wooden spoon. The sugar should be completely dissolved and should turn a golden color, it should not become too dark.
  3. Chop some of the almonds coarsely and leave the remainder whole.
  4. Turn off the heat as soon as the sugar is done. Add the almonds to the saucepan and stir to combine well.
  5. Immediately pour the mixture on a marble surface greased with oil or on a wax paper-lined baking sheet.
  6. Use a greased spatula or knife blade (or even a lemon) to level the brittle to the desired thickness.
  7. Let the almond brittle cool for a few minutes and before it hardens, cut it into pieces with a large knife and then allow the brittle to harden completely.
  8. The brittle can be stored, wrapped in aluminum foil and inside a tin canister or glass jar.
