Merry Christmas!

I couldn’t run Paloni without the help of my family – or at least many things would be left undone and it all wouldn’t be the same at all.

When we organize courses and workshops at our store, it’s usually my mom who takes care of the catering. Her special are the roasted cinnamon almonds. Many of our customers have already asked for the recipe, so as a Christmas gift to our customers and friends, I decided to share it to you all.

With this recipe, I want to wish you all a very joyful and relaxed Christmas! I hope that you, like I, have the chance to spend some relaxing time with your families.

Roasted cinnamon almonds
 

Paahdetut kanelimantelit

3 dl kuorimattomia manteita
2 rkl hunajaa
2 rkl vettä
2 tl rypsiöljyä
1/2 dl sokeria
2 tl kanelia
1/2 tl suolaa

Levitä mantelit leivinpaperilla päällystetylle pellille ja paahda 225 asteisessa uunissa n 10 min (meidän uunissa n 5-7 min). Hämmentele manteleita aika ajoin ja ole tarkkana, etteivät mantelit kärvähdä. Kun mantelit ovat kullanruskeita ja tuoksuvia, nosta pelti uunista.

Sekoita teflonkasarissa ( wokkipannu kätevä) hunaja, vesi ja öljy kiehumispisteeseen. Kun neste kiehuu, lisää mantelit. Sekoita ja anna kiehua n 5 min kunnes suurin osa nesteestä on imeytynyt manteleihin. Nosta mantelit vatiin, jossa on puolet sokeri-kaneli-suolaseoksesta. Kierittele manteleita seoksessa ja ripottele loput sokeriseoksesta päälle.

Jäähdytä mantelit ja irroittele niitä toisistaan leivinpaperin päällä. Herkkusi ovat valmiita nautittaviksi!

Roasted cinnamon almonds

3 dl almonds (un-peeled)
2 table spoons honey
2 table spoons water
2 tea spoons canola oil
1/2 dl sugar
2 tea spoons cinnamon (minced)
1/2 tea spoons salt

Spread the almonds on a baking tray and roast in the oven at 225 degrees Celsius for about 10 minutes (or for a bit shorter time, 5-7 minutes, if the oven is effective). Stir the almonds once in a while and be careful that they don’t burn. When the almonds have a nice amber color and smell good, take the tray out from the oven.

Mix honey, water and oil in a frying pan (a wok pan is handy) and heat up until it boils. Then add the almonds. Mix and let boil for about 5 minutes or until most of the liquid has been absorbed by the almonds.

Mix half of the sugar and cinnamon powder in a bowl, and add the almonds. Roll the almonds in the mix, then add the other half of the sugar and cinnamon powder to the top.

Let the almonds cool off, then pour them onto a tray / greaseproof paper, and separate them from each other. Your cinnamon almonds are ready to be served!
