    Kitchen Dictionary: almond paste

    A mixture of blanched ground almonds, sugar, and glycerin or other liquid. Sometimes almond extract is added. Almond paste is less sweet and slightly coarser than marzipan.


    Season: available year-round

    How to select: Almond paste should be firm, but pliable. If it becomes hard, soften by heating 2-3 seconds in a microwave.

    How to store: Available in cans or plastic packaging. When opened, refrigerate tightly wrapped.
