As a reader recently commented, it’s crunch time! Now one week and four days to go and I’m starting to feel the pressure. But not all tasks were hair pulling, teeth grinding chores.
A pot, a mountain of almonds, sugar and cinnamon everywhere and Spotify playing in the background with our favourite tunes: we were a sugar roasting almond factory. Gebrannte Mandeln (sugar roasted almonds) are our wedding favour treat of choice and there’s nothing like it when it’s homemade.
Behold the gooey sugary mess that needed to be cooled and then divided!
Well, Mr H definitely enjoyed making the batches. I think in total we used 1.6kgs of almonds and 1.2kgs of sugar. Yes, they’re not exactly healthy ;)
Whiskey wasn’t happy. She wanted some too. Little kitty paws can’t undo wrapping and bow ties :(
