With the fusion of blanched ground almonds, sugar, and glycerin or milk, Almond Paste is made. Almond paste is less sweet and slightly coarser than marzipan. Place the almonds into a blender with a few tablespoons of the milk they have been cooked in. Blend to make a fine purae. Adjust the consistency by adding more cooking liquid if required and a dash of cream and almond oil to taste How to Select Almond paste is a shelf stable product and is found in the baking ingredient section of the store. It is sold in cans or plastic wrapping. This is an ingredient that dries out when exposed to air so store any excess product tightly wrapped in the fridge.
