A simple and delicious dessert: Almonds with honey
Recipe type: Dessert
Cuisine: Greek
Serves: 2
  • 1 pot of water, enough to cover almonds plus one inch
  • ¼ cup almonds
  • 3-4 tablespoons honey, plus more if desired
  1. *First, we need to blanch the almonds so we can easily remove their skin.*
  2. Bring a pot of water to a boil on high heat.
  3. Add almonds and let boil for 60 seconds.
  4. Pour over strainer to catch almonds and rinse them under cold water to cool and stop cooking.
  5. Remove the skin from the almonds. You’ll find you can more or less pinch them and they should slide right out.
  6. Dry with paper towel, should be as dry as possible.
  7. Add almonds and 2 tablespoons honey to a saucepan over medium-low heat.
  8. Cook until almonds get a little golden, and remove.
  9. Pour half of almonds with honey into 2 small bowls, top with extra honey if desired.
  10. Let almonds and honey cool, about 10-15 minutes, and enjoy!
