Marzipan is a classic European sweet made from 2 ingredients - pure sugar and the finest almonds. Some say marzipan originated in Italy several centuries ago during a major drought, when the only substantial crop to survive was the almond crop. People found all kinds of ways to prepare almonds, and marzipan was one of their resourceful (and delicious!) creations.
Germans adopted this recipe and created the finest marzipan in Lubeck using the best Mediterranean almonds and sugar, and a very precise roasting temperature. This marzipan is made according to the original Lubecker method to create a sweet, pliable mixture shaped in the traditional shapes of apples and oranges. A perfect holiday treat.
