How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 160degC. Brush a 25cm by 18cm by3cm deep slice pan with a little butter.
  • Combine sugar, tangelo juice, honey and orange blossom water in a saucepan over low heat. Stir until sugar dissolves and mixture comes to the boil. Cook for 5 mins or until syrup thickens slightly. set aside to cool.
  • Place nuts and spices into a food processor and pulse until finely chopped. Transfer into a bowl and stir in 3/4 cup of the syrup.
  • Brush 6 sheets of filo pastry with butter and layer one on top of the other to make a stack. Repeat with the remaining sheets to make 2 more stacks. Fold each stack in half so the short edges meet. Lay a stack in the base of the prepared pan.
  • Spoon half the nut mixture over the filo base. Cover with another layer of filo. Spread remaining nut mixture and cover with remaining stack of filo. Trim if necessary.
  • Using a small sharp knife, mark into pieces. bake for 1 hour or until golden brown and crisp.
  • Pour remaining tangelo syrup and stand for 2 hours before cutting into pieces. Sprinkle with rind for decoration.
