Any nice recipes?

  1. I have a great one of French origin if you are interested. It's got almonds, and also hazelnuts, pistachio and candied peel. Add to that a little honey and lavender.

    It's not hard to make, but you will need a surface, either stainless steel, granite, marble or the like, to pour it out on.

        How can I see your nougat recipe? This is my first time on Chowhound. I have a lot of honey from my hives; I would like to make almond or nut nougat using mostly honey(or all) and less sugar. -Valerie

      2. The pistachio torrone recipe in the December issue of Gourmet (not sure if it's on their website yet) looks really good, and it calls for almond extract.
