'Lainie mentioned:
"Lessee what I can remember... Gyngerbrede, shortbread,
marzipan, pistachio marzipan, White Torta, candied orange peels, apricot
roses, some almond and honey candy..."

"pistachio marzipan"? I assume, since you also mention just  
"marzipan" that this is marzipan made using pistachios, rather than  

I don't seem to have any info in the Florilegium on "pistachio  
marzipan". Is there actually a period recipe or mention of this? Or  
is this just a modern variation? I assume part of the trick is to  
find unsalted pistachios. I've found them out of the shell, but I  
think these were salted.
