GOURMANDE in OSAKA

Pralines roses, pralines rouges… the pink or red sugared almonds are a cute sweet. They make a few lovely French desserts.
How do they make them ?

With almonds… and sugar. I can make the beige and the black ones.

Food color. They don’t use the same type in France. This one is “beni koji” made from a rice ferment. That usually works the same. Here you can see the powder dissolved in water. RED.

But my pralines are… desesparetely auburn. LOL.
If anyone has a tip on how to make them red, I’d be happy to hear it.

They taste good. The sugar is “whitish” and looks like sand inside… but not enough ?

They look like the black ones..

They are slightly red in very favorable light…
