1 lb Almond Paste
We've decide to cut out all of the international exchange and buy some professional grade almond paste right from California.
This premium paste is made with 66% almonds - most almond paste is made with 50% or less - and contains bitter almond oil for an extra boost of almond flavor, something the Europeans are known for.
Did you know that most of the almond paste used in countries like Switzerland and France is made from almonds grown in California, including some that is exported back here to the USA!
That's right, the most persnickity pastry chefs and chocolatiers in Europe know a good thing when they taste it.
