Amigdalota (Sugared Almonds) from Sikaminia

1 kilo of almond kernels, 1 kilo of sugar, 3 glasses of water, 1 coffee cup of rose-water, 1/4 kilo of caster sugar.

Boil the almonds so as to remove their skin and let them dry. Crush them finely. Put the water and sugar into a saucepan and boil them so as to make a syrup (not too thick) and add the crushed almond kernels stirring with a WOODEN spoon. Before the mixture becomes too thick add the rose-water and stir for a few more minutes. Let it cool and mould into different shapes of your likeness. Finally coat with caster sugar.
