Place almonds in a heavy, ungreased skillet.
Stir often over medium heat until golden brown.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Bake for 20 to 30, stirring occasionally, until golden brown.
Melt sugar and honey in a pot over medium heat, add the almonds and turn constantly with a wooden spoon (about 30 minutes) until a firm consistency. Add orange zest in final minute. Put the mixture on a wet, work surface and spread with a cutting board until you reach a thickness of 1 inch. Cut into rectangles of 2 inches.
These torroni may be kept in a closed container for a long time.
