300g cashews
225g sugar
125ml water
1) Preheat the oven to 180C/Gas Mark 4.

2) Place the cashews on a baking tin and place in the oven. Toast the cashews for 10 minutes, or until golden brown. Be sure to watch the cashews carefully so they don't burn! Remove the cashews from the oven and cool.

3) In a saucepan (copper works best), add the sugar and the water. Bring the mixture to a boil. Once the mixture is boiling and the sugar has dissolved, add the cashews.

4) Continue cooking the mixture, stirring constantly. The sugar will thicken, and then become granular again, continue stirring. The sugar will then begin to turn back into a clear liquid. When all of the sugar has turned into a clear liquid, remove the pan from the heat, stirring constantly.

5) Once the sugar begins to turn a golden colour, spoon the nuts onto a parchment paper-lined sheet pan. Allow to cool.
