Ampyang


My grandmother always brought me this when she came over our house in Jakarta. I missed my grandma so much and I missed when she left all of us to be with the Lord last year. I couldn't go home because I was ill. I really wanted to eat this so I tried to get the recipe online and found it. So simple and so easy to make.

Ingredients:
  • 1 lb peanuts with the skins still attach

  • 1 block palm sugar (about 200 gr)

  • 2 inches ginger

  1. Toast the peanuts in the skillet

  2. Grate the ginger and squeeze to get the liquid

  3. Cut palm sugar into chunk

  4. Put palm sugar and ginger in a pot, cook in low heat until sugar melt for about 10 minutes until you get the consistency of caramel sugar.

  5. Turn off the stove, add all the peanuts into the melted sugar.

  6. Righ away scoop one tablespoon on a greased aluminium foil or parchment paper quickly.

  7. Let it cool and ready to eat.
