Marzipan – a delicious confectionery made from almonds and sugar syrup. In Germany, for example, marzipan is traditionally prepared for Christmas for Stollen. Candies, cake decorations and even liquor are also prepared from marzipan.
Rinse almonds with cold water and fry in a hot pan. Fry the almonds for 10 minutes, stirring constantly.
Dissolve sugar in water and put on fire. Cook sugar syrup over low heat until the syrup thickens slightly.
Add chopped almonds to boiling syrup, mix well. Cook the almond mass, stirring constantly for 3-5 minutes.
If you need not crumbly marzipan, but more uniform and viscous, remove it from the heat and beat with a blender. At the same time, add one tablespoon of boiling water to marzipan. So you can bring marzipan to the consistency that you need. Store marzipan in a plastic wrap in the refrigerator.
