NOTES:

For the caramelized almond:

You’ll need 70 gr. almond & 1 tbsp sugar

  1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. Place sliced almonds and granulated sugar in a skillet over medium-high heat. Stir constantly for 3-4 minutes. Remove pan from heat once the almonds are toasted and sugar has melted and sticks to the almonds.
  3. Pour mixture onto the parchment paper and quickly spread out as much as possible using a spatula.
  4. Let almonds cool completely and then break into clusters if stuck together.

You can easily replace mirabelle plums with apples or pears that you’ll find easier this season.
