Turron de Alicante PGI Hard Almond Nougat 400g
Alicante turrón is dryer, harder and covered with a smooth wafer. Their basic ingredients are peeled and toasted almonds, honey, egg whites and sugar. The use of almonds means that these varieties of nougat are high in calories, low in water content and a good source of carbohydrates, fibre, fats, phosphorus, magnesium, calcium and vitamin E. The fat they contain is principally unsaturated due to almonds being the principal ingredient and, as a result, they are low in cholesterol.
The key to making authentic Alicante-style turrón lies in the selection of the raw materials, as well as in the cooking and the mixture of sugar and honey, which is referred to as molasses. However, the master nougat makers are very secretive about the real key to making this sweet into a supreme desert: el punto de la bola (the moment it can be rolled into a ball). In other words, the exact moment when the mixture of all the ingredients converts an ordinary nougat into one from Jijona and Alicante.
