ALMONDS, CREAMED

Shell and blanch burnt almonds and lay them in the open oven to dry, but do not let them brown. Put one cup of granulated sugar over the fire with a tablespoon of water; stir until it is well dissolved and comes to a boil . Drop into this the blanched almonds a few at the time and take them out immediately with a perforated spoon or candy dipper, laying them on waxed paper until they harden, or upon buttered plates.
