Spiced Hazelnut Ingberlach
1½ cups honey
½ cup sugar
½ cup orange juice
1 teaspoon cinnamon
¼ teaspoon ground cloves
¼ teaspoon ground allspice
2 teaspoons dry ground ginger
¼ teaspoon kosher salt
5 sheets (5 ounces) matzo, finely crumbled
1 cup chopped hazelnuts
Lightly oil a rimmed baking sheet.
In a large, heavy saucepan over medium heat, combine the honey, sugar, orange juice, cinnamon, cloves, allspice, ginger and salt. Bring to a simmer and cook for 10 minutes.
Stir in the matzo and hazelnuts. Cook until golden brown and thick, about another 10 minutes. Using a silicone spatula, spread the mixture on the prepared baking sheet. Allow to cool until easily handled, then scoop up the mixture and, using lightly oiled hands, roll into ½-inch balls. Store in an airtight container with waxed paper between the layers.
