Spanish Food Recipes ... tasty turr n

What, exactly, is turr n?

Well, it's a sort of sweet, candy or nougat, made mainly out of almonds and honey, whose origins go back to the sweet-toothed Moorish conquerors of Spain.

Nowadays, it's recognised very much as Spain's Christmas-time sweet.

You'll discover numerous varieties on offer in shops but, basically, there are two main types ...

A brittle, hard type of turr n ... and a soft one.

Both are delicious - the ideal ending to a celebration meal, accompanied by a small cup of coffee.

Is any one Spanish area particularly well-known for producing turr n?...

Yes, in fact most turr n comes from Alicante Province, where I live - in particular, around Jijona.

Not so long ago, we visited a turr n factory. It was wonderfully clean and well-organized ... and the products superb!

Below, you'll find a simple recipe for home-made turr n, so that you can enjoy it anytime, and not just at Christmas.

In fact, it's one of the sweet tapas recipes in my Spanish Tapas Kindle Book ... along with 299 other amazingly simple tapas recipes. Most of them savory, of course.

But, now for your home-made turr n recipe ...
