Introduction
This entry is a re-creation of a recipe from The Prince of Transylvania's Court Cookbook (Hungary, 16th c.), entitled "Fried Almonds". [insert a brief description of dish here, possibly including any or all of the following: characteristics of the final dish, when or how it might have been served, and why you selected it]


The Source Recipe
The original text of the recipe is as follows:

Fried almonds. Mix some rose or other kind of water with almonds, it should be dense like the porridge, add some hot butter, then some saffron, once it is starting to cook, add some bread crumbs, salt and a bit of sugar, once you're about to serve it, add lots of cinnamon, it will look like scrambled eggs. Believe me without doubt, my friend, that this dish will give strength to the patient, especially if the patient drinks some good wine.
