I forget where I've seen this, but I definitely have seen a reference
to [a] marzipan alternative[s] in earlyish period based on either
pignoles, or pistachios, or both (separate entities, that is, if
both). I know Chiquart mentions pine nut paste as an ingredient in
his Tourtes of Parma, but doesn't define it or give a recipe for it,
and I STR (but could be wrong) that pistachio "marzipan" is mentioned
somewhere. If nowhere else finely ground pistachios appear in one or
more of the Teste de Turte recipes.
I found this reference with a recipe for pistachio marzipan, and have asked
for the original. Ideas?
