Akanes also contains pieces of roasted almonds, sugar, starch and cornstarch. This mixture created is boiled in a large pot for hours until it gets an amber color. The mixture is firstly placed in bronze cookware and then into molds. A sprinkle of confectioners’ sugar gives the pieces of akanes a delicious finishing touch.
