How to Make Almond Paste
I'm desperately looking for a recipe to make almond paste the old fashioned way, NOT store bought.
Try this recipe:
10 oz dried blanched almonds
Make a sugar syrup by placing the water, sugar, and corn syrup in a saucepan. Stir it to combine. Bring it to a boil and let it boil for a few moments. Let it cool.
Place the almonds in a food processor and process them to a fine powder. Add the powdered sugar. With the food processor running, slowly add the sugar syrup until the mixture forms a paste.
Store the almond paste tightly covered. If you will be storing it for more than a week, store in the refrigerator.
