turron - (spanish nougat) andalucia 
 
today these sweets can be bought all over spain. in olden days, turron was 
a costly treat, and was made at home for special occasions such as 
christmas 
or easter. each family had its own recipe. 
 
  250g / 8 oz caster sugar
  240g / 8 oz ground almonds
2   egg yolks
1   egg white
 
thoroughly mix the sugar and almonds in a bowl. fold in the egg yolks, one 
after the other. whisk the egg white into a stiff foam and fold it into 
the mixture. lay a sheet of foil over a baking sheet and place the mixture 
on it. press the mixture into a slab about 1.5cm /1/2 inch thick using a 
rolling pin and your fingers. cover it with foil and place a wooden board 
weighted down with a couple of full tin cans on top. leave the turron to 
stand for 3 days, so that it dries out and hardnes, then slice it into 
2.5cm/ 1 inch squares. note: eggbeaters and just whites can be used in 
place of raw eggs .
