Grind the almonds in a food processor to a coarse grain.
Remove the almonds from the food processor and place in a mixing bowl.
Slowly stir in the argan oil (1 tablespoon at a time).
Stir in the honey (1 tablespoon at a time).
Pre-heat the oven to 150°C.
Put 150g sugar and the water in a pan and heat gently to create a caramel, about 5 minutes.

Coat the peaches in the remaining sugar to ensure that they are completely covered.
