Slightly squeeze and simultaneously shake each tomato to discard seeds and put back into the lime water to soak another 30 minutes until firm. Drain, thoroughly inverted, on linen towels. To make the syrup, combine the sugar and 2 cups water in jelly pan, stir and bring to boil. Skim, add the spices and boil for 10 minutes. Remove from heat. Cool tomatoes overnight in syrup and continue cooking to soft ball stage. Remove from heat, add tomatoes. Cool. Slip an almond inside each tomato. Store cherry tomatoes in sealed containers.
