Most of the time you can’t even find it, but when you do how do you know its real marzipan? These are the reasons I make it myself. You can use marzipan dipped in chocolate, coloured, flavoured or formed into candies and decorations, or sometimes in recipes like stollen.

1-1/2 cups sugar
1/2 cup water
2 cups ground blanched almonds (the finer the ground, the better)

• Place the sugar and water in a saucepan and cook until the sugar dissolves.
• Add the almonds and cook it until the batter stops sticking to the pan.
• Remove from heat and place on a flat surface.
• While still warm, knead first with a spatula and then by hand until smooth.
• Wrap the marzipan in plastic wrap and store it in an airtight plastic bag.
• If marzipan is dry, soften it with a small amount of syrup. If too soft, add icing sugar to it.

I began to post recipes for my family and it turned out to be a work in progress. "zsuzsa is in the kitchen" has over 900 recipes of Hungarian and international recipes. My recipes are organized into a cookbook format. On top of the page click on the cookbook to get access to all my recipes. If I ever figure out how to add a printer friendly gadget I will add it. In the meantime feel free to cut and paste. Happy cooking!
