Preparation of the crunchy with pine nuts

  1. Start by toasting the pine nuts in a very hot pan, it takes just a few minutes, after which you will immediately remove the pine nuts to keep them in a bowl.
  2. Prepare a sheet of parchment paper on a flat surface such as the kitchen top (if it's marble) or line a baking dish.
  3. Put the sugar in the same pan, add the cinnamon powder , to give the crunchy a good aroma.
  4. Let the sugar melt over a very low flame, continuing to turn it carefully so that it does not burn.
  5. Mix well, turn off the heat and add all the well toasted pine nuts. Help yourself with a kitchen silicone spatula, pull the melted sugar well with the pine nuts in order to make a thin and uniform layer.
  6. Leave to cool and your good crunchy pine nuts with cinnamon scent is ready.
  7. Break it roughly with your hands and keep it in a closed container, preferably glass. You can bring the jar to the table or put the amount of crunchy you are interested in on a nice serving dish, perhaps with fresh seasonal fruit nearby.

We recommend keeping the dried fruit brittle in a cool, dry place for a few days, well away from sources of light or heat.
