2)Slurry - Brown sugar(900g) + Liq. glucose+ water mixed and boiled.
3)Guar gum + brown sugar(100g) added to the boiled slurry and then mixed.
4)Almonds are then coated with a slurry in a pan coater. ( the temp. diff.
between the two not more than 25F.
5) Desiccated coconut+ salt then sprinkled over it.
6) Final roasting - 140 c for 10 min
