  • 1 lb sugar

Food History:

The origins of the almond are to be found in Asia Minor: something testified by the wealth of recipes based on this most fragrant of nuts.

In antiquity, its use as a foodstuff soon spread all over the Mediterranean basin: in Italy almonds provide real gastronomic pearls, as “confetti” (sugared almonds), and in biscuits, pastries, and marzipan.
