A Word from our Chocolate Master
Our marzipan-based confectioneries are usually crystallised. By "crystallised" we mean the confectionery is immersed in a supersaturated sugar syrup (granulated sugar dissolved in water) for about 12 hours. The excess sugar in the syrup settles on the confectionery in the form of little crystals. This delicate sugar crust keeps the marzipan doughy and provides a slight contrast in texture when the confectionery is eaten. The marzipan used for Amarenas are made by us from almonds grown in Drôme Provençale. We use Lauranne or Ferragnes varieties. Mr Villeneuve's farm supplies us with all our almonds which we then use in our workshop. The pistachios used in our marzipan are grown in Sicily, in the village of Bronte. These are the most flavourful pistachios around and are much sought after.
