I’m sure many of you are familiar with turrón de navidad. A hard, almond nougat candy that is enjoyed throughout all of Spain during this season.
It’s traditionally made of only three ingredients – roasted almonds, egg whites, and…
When I made this turrón this year, I was deeply moved when my mami took a bite and swooned with delight.
She told me that she hadn’t tasted turrón like this since she was a little girl living in Sevilla. You can only imagine how happy I felt inside.
Now please keep in mind that turrón is hard. In Spain there’s a running joke that you need a mallet at the end of the year to break up and eat turrón. This version, in it’s tradition, isn’t that hard since it’s made of pure honey.
It is sticky, so I keep my turron in the refrigerator separated with parchment paper until it’s ready to serve. I see that some people have already made their own versions wrapping these up as individual small pieces in cellophane.
