Honeyed Almonds

I have been making my own honeyed almonds for years now... and the way I make them I usually get a very shiney looking almond, something like this one I have been trying to get them to look and taste more like this one How do you reckon they do it? I have tried roasting the almonds after they have been soaked in honey... I've tried adding brown sugar when they are cooling... Im just not sure what to do... Do you think its the type of honey used? I usually use a clear runny type...

Hmm... let me know :)

I think they're tumbled in sugar.

Coated in toffee, then tumbled in sugar (in something like a cement-mixer...)

granulated maple syrup maybe?

Ooops, I guess I meant "crystallized" :-) I am not sure what "taste" you are after, but if you can get a concentrated amount (in a small quantity) to crystallize using the nut/legume as a seed, you might be able to do this (too much and you'll get big crystals :-)

Best answer.

Sometimes they are made by the street vendor with copper pots and he lays them out in the stand for the road grit and construction debris nearby to settle down on them.  Btw, the nut vendor is the bravest man in the world.  He whistles while his nu legumes are burning.

Hmm, that looks like it may JUST work! thanks!

It looks like they've rolled them in something after adding the honey.

Maybe blitz a few dry-roast almonds in a blender, and roll the still-sticky almonds in the powder?
