There is a reason why almonds are called the queen among nuts. They taste the best as marzipan.
There are two kinds of almond – bitter and sweet. Bitter almonds have a higher content of amygdalin, a substance responsible for the bitter taste. The almond tree thrives in hot weather and the best sweet almonds come from Sicily. For our ice cream, we use the famous Sicilian almonds from Avola, which taste delicate and sweet – in short, they taste like almond. The more we put in, the better the ice cream tastes.
There’s never enough of nice sweet things!
Viva la Sicilia!
