orange blossom honey
finely ground almonds
egg whites, beaten stiff
All Nougat has uncooked eggs in it. I ate a lot of it and never got sick. All in all it is a very good recipe that you definately try.
I hoping this would be more like what we found in Spain but it was nothing like it. Also, It never dried out and after 2 days, I had to heat it up. I thought "YUCK, I should just throw it all out" but after heating it, it firmed up and was ok.
this sounds very good but i'm concerned with having uncooked eggs and it setting out for 3 days. any suggestions on that?
I had no luck with this recipe at all. Not only did it never set up, the ingredients separated as well.
I was so disappointed. It never set/hardened. I come to figure out there are ingrediants missing after the fact. I compared to other recipes and this one is forgetting the sugar. Expensive lesson since I made a large batch. This honey is not cheap.
It did not work at all. I followed the recipe exactly and the ingredients completely separated. I should have listened to the other reviews. The ingredients are expensive.
