"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.
