¾ cup almonds
3 apricot kernels (extract from stone with mortar and pestle)
1 tablespoon runny honey (mine had a touch of vanilla)
Pinch of salt
1 teaspoon or so almond or macadamia nut oil
A little water
1. Mill the dry ingredients to a fine flour.
2. Then add the honey and oil to the processor and pulse till it holds together. Add a teaspoon of water here if required (or possibly start with soaked almonds?)
3. Now knead with your hands till it forms a proper, stiff dough and the oil starts to be released.
4. Refrigerate and shape to your pleasure.
Delicious, sophisticated, and authentic-tasting marzipan that is elevated to real heights by the simple addition of the apricot kernels. Please try it and judge for yourself.
The honey gives a Toblerone decadence. Vegans will have to use a substitute. :(
The ones to the right in the picture were encased in my first ever version of bitter chocolate (grinding a small quantity of apricot kernels with the cacao beans). Yum.
The orange was also great--navels semi-dehydrated till flavorful and juicy, and served in segments.
NB apricot kernels contain amygdalin (Vitamin B17), which is linked to long life and an anti-cancer agent. The bitter ‘cyanide’ flavor is completely safe.
