Christmas trailReviewed by our expert panel
(at time of publication)
- a glass jar with a tight lid, large enough for all the ingredients (about 400ml)
- ¼ cup salt, for cooking
- 2 x 70g packets blanched whole almonds
- 150g packet dried cranberries
- 1 cup shredded dry coconut
1 Wash jar in warm water. Leave it in the sun or a warm place to dry inside.
2 Pour salt and almonds into a small non-stick frying pan. Cook over a medium heat, shaking the pan from time to time, until almonds turn golden. DO NOT LEAVE PAN UNATTENDED. Keep a careful eye on almonds which can suddenly turn golden quickly.
3 Pour almonds into a sieve over the sink and shake off salt (it’s OK if some salt sticks to the almonds).
4 Arrange ingredients in jar: first, a layer of roasted almonds at the bottom followed by a cranberry layer then topped with a coconut layer. Close lid. Attach instruction label to bottle. Wrap with wax paper or cheese cloth.
