Marzipan consists mainly of almonds, powdered sugar and almond flavoring or rose water*. The quality of the marzipan mass is determined by the ratio of sugar to almonds. The less sugar, the higher the quality of the product.
Can you make marzipan at home? Of course it is, and it's easier than you might think. As a result, we will get an incredibly delicious, aromatic, soft, almond delicacy.
*Rose water is an excellent, aromatic addition to marzipans, creams, puddings and other sweets. In Arab countries, rose water is also used to cook meat. You can easily buy rose water in the online store Kuchnie Świat>.
250 g almonds
250g powdered sugar
20 - 30 ml of rose water or almond liqueur (Amaretto)
a few drops of almond aroma
Almonds pour boiling water, leave for 15 minutes, then peel off the brown skin. Blend the peeled almonds in a blender. sand/flour. Add powdered sugar, mix briefly, add rose water or liqueur and almond flavoring, mix briefly again. Put the mixture into a large bowl or on a pastry board and knead until a homogeneous mass is obtained. If the mass crumbles, you can add a little rose water or liqueur.
We form the ready-made marzipan mass as desired. We can roll it up or, like me, line the molds with cling film, fill with the mass, wrap in foil and put in the fridge for at least an hour.
