Gin and orange candied almonds

Hack into these for a great anytime snack
500g raw almonds
½ cup Bossieveld Inspiration Gin
¼ cup light brown sugar
¼ tsp salt
½ tsp nutmeg, ground
½ tsp ginger, ground
¼ tsp cloves, ground
½ cup freshly squeezed orange juice
  1. Combine the gin, orange juice, sugar and the spices into a saucepan and stir to dissolve over low heat. Bring to the boil and reduce until the sauce starts to thicken after approximately 10 to 15 minutes.
  2. Add the almonds and stir through to make sure that all the almonds are coated.
  3. Pour onto a greased oven pan and bake at 180˚C until golden brown, tossing the pan every now and then to prevent the nuts from burning.
  4. Remove from the oven and allow to cool before adding to the salad.
You can prepare a large batch of these nuts and serve them later with your gin cocktail provided that you store them an airtight container.
