Almonds 5 oz
Honey 1,4 oz
Sugar 1,4 oz
Extra Virgin Olive Oil (to oil the pan and the knife)
Spread the almonds in a pan, toast 15 minutes or until are slightly browned. Stir periodically to prevent burning.
Add honey and sugar. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly. The mixture is done when you can hear the almonds beginning to "pop" from the heat of the honey. Switch off the fire.
Oil the parchment paper with extra Virgin Olive Oil. Pour the mixture into the paper. Flatten the top with the half lemon until you reach the desired height (about 1/2 inch). The lemon will balance the sweet flavor.
Oil a kitchen knife and cut torrone while it is still warm otherwise, you will not be able to cut it. Leave it cool before eating.
Rather than flatten your torrone you can also put it in small cupcakes paper cups! It is easier and funny!
- The right balance between sugar and honey. Too much sugar makes torrone too hard. Contrariwise, if the sugar is not enough this sweet will not solidify.
- Half lemon to rub the surface. The lemon and orange peel will balance the sweet flavor.
- Flatten torrone before while it is still warm otherwise, you will not be able to cut it.
