Extract

Products based on the aromatic essential oils of plant materials that are distilled by various means. In extracts, the highly concentrated oils usually are suspended in alcohol to make them easier to combine with other foods in cooking and baking. Almond, anise, lemon, mint, orange, peppermint, and vanilla are some of the pure extracts sold.

  3. Torrone (Italian Nut & Nougat Confection) – A Stirring Valentine’s Day Treat

    Sat, 13 Feb 2016

    The theme of this torrone post was originally about making this gorgeous candy for your Valentine, but then I realized what would be even better than making this for your sweetheart, would be making with your sweetheart. While very easy, this procedure does take about one and a half hours to complete, and most of that time is spent standing at the stove, stirring, which is why tag-teaming this Italian confection makes the job much easier, and I’ll assume a lot more fun. By the way, this is the real way to make torrone, and by “real,” I mean the really old way. Today, most candy makers use a much faster method, where a caramelized sugar syrup is simply added to the whipped egg whites. I’ve tried this both ways, and while the modern technique is way faster, I much prefer this method. It seems to have more soul, whatever that means. Using this ancient technique, you don’t need to worry about precise timing, specific temperatures, or potentially painful burns. Besides, standing and stirring something on the stove for that long is surprisingly therapeutic. Watching the ingredients slowly, and magically change, as your home fills with the sweet aroma of warm honey, is almost as enjoyable as the amazing candy you end up with. Almost. The visual clues, and times I give in the video should be enough, but don’t forget the cold water trick I showed you. That’s a great way to check you work, and sneak a taste. I hope you give this a try ve r y soon. Enjoy! Recipe adapted from this one by , Enzo Maragucci .  Makes about 80 (1-inch) square pieces: 400 g honey (about 1 1/3 cups) 250 g white sugar (about 1 cup plus 3 tablespoons) 2 large egg whites pinch salt 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract 1 rounded t ablespoon lemon zest 3 cups roasted almonds (I used Marcona almonds) 1 cup roasted pistachio 2 sheets “wafer” paper (*edible rice paper) * Follow this link for info on the one I ordered .  If y ou don't use the waf er pap er, you can just spray plast ic wrap with oil, and that also works. Some people use cornstar c h, but I'm not a fa n. Google for many other tricks.   - I used an 8 x 11 baking dish to mold mine in.
