Ingredients

  • A Pound of Peeled Almonds
  • 2 Cupfuls of Sugar
  • A Tablespoonful of Orange Flower Water

Method

To one pound of skinned almonds add one pound of sugar. Pound to a pulp in a mortar, occasionally adding a few drops of water, to prevent the Almonds from running to oil. Use Orange Flower Water. Add fine white sifted sugar till you have sufficient to make a paste, and work till well amalgamated and elastic. It will now be ready for any use designated in this book.
