Almond Paste

  • 1 pound of sweet almonds
  • 3/4 a pound of loaf sugar
  • gelatin flavoring
Needed: One pound of sweet almonds, three fourths a pound of loaf sugar, gelatin flavoring. Blanch the almonds by putting them into boiling water; soak them for four hours in cold water and pound them well in a mortar, adding a few small drops of water to take off the oiliness. When beaten to a paste, put in three-quarters of a pound of well crushed loaf sugar, and mix all together. When quite fine and smooth, put it into a stew pan over a slow fire, and stir with a wooden spoon until it is white and dry. Put it again in the mortar, and mix with a little melted and strained gelatin. Keep it covered. Flavor with what you like. Cover with a moist towel, or it will dry up.
