Marzipan (Almond Paste)

  • Recipe Submitted by on

Category: Candy

 Ingredients List

  • 1 lb Blanched almonds
  • 2 c Sugar
  • 1 c Water
  • Icing sugar
  • Almond extract, or vanilla
  • Extract or rose water


If you blanch the almonds yourself, spread them out to dry well before
proceeding. Grind them through the fine blade of a food chopper three
or four times until very fine.

Bring sugar and water to a boil in a medium saucepan, stirring until
sugar dissolves. Boil hard until syrup registers 240 degrees F on a
candy thermometer. Add to almonds and stir until creamy. Sprinkle a
large platter with icing sugar. Spread almond mixture on platter,
cool, then pack into a large jar with a tight fitting lid. Mixture
will be crumbly at this point. Let stand at least one week to mellow.

Gather into a ball and knead on a board sprinkled with icing sugar
until smooth and pliable. Knead in a few drops of your chosen
flavouring. Makes about 3 1/2 cups.
