Marzipan to eat- or to use for cakes or pies.
The picture of the result is NOT mine! I forgot to take a picture of the final result, so I google'd a picture.

- I'm sorry if there are any spelling mistakes in this how-to, but I'm Dutch. I don't know all words, so I use google, and it sucks.

  • How to make marzipan. Marzipan - Step 1
    Step 1

    You're gonna need
    200 gram peeled almonds
    250 gram powdered sugar
    1 egg-white
    Some drops of lemon juice, or something else to flavour it.
    You might want to add food colouring too. I haven't tried that yet, but i read that it's better to have a paste, instead of liquid food colouring.

  • How to make marzipan. Marzipan - Step 3
    Step 3

    You're gonna need 3 bowls, one for the almonds, one for the powdered sugar, and one for the egg. You're gonna need something else to chop the almonds in TINY pieces, and you can see the rest :)

  • How to make marzipan. Marzipan - Step 5
    Step 5

    Since I killed my mixer during the last step, I used this thing. If you use this, be aware of the almonds flying around. I put a towel over the bowl while mixing, so that they'll fall right back into the bowl.

  • How to make marzipan. Marzipan - Step 6
    Step 6

    Add the powdered sugar, the egg-white, and some drops of lemon juice, or whatever you want to use. Form the paste to a roll now, and put aluminium foil or plastic wrap around it. I used plastic wrap.
    Let it rest in the fridge for 24 hours. NOW you can colour the marzipan, if you want it. When it's done you can best keep it OUTSIDE the fridge. It stays good for 7 months that way. Keep it in a plastic bag or so, in a (sealed) container.

@Tania E.: You don't have to, but it's smart to do it when pregnant women, children and older people eat it. Happy
