Packed 10 pounds. Our premium nut pastes are made by combining raw or roasted nuts with sugar to create a delightful confectionery paste, ideal for use in any recipe where the rich flavor of nuts is desired. This Almond paste is the gold standard against which other types of pastes are as a rule compared. It is characterized as having a delicate and subtle almond favor. American Almond brand Almond Paste is prepared from select grades of almonds grown in California. After blanching to remove the skins, the almonds are ground and then cooked with pure granulated cane sugar to a semi–firm smooth paste. Almond Paste can be used to make Marzipan with additional confectioner’s sugar and syrup.
