Pure Spanish!

…And here are your answers for the typical Spanish food for Christmas!


As you can see, the right answer is ´Jijona Nougat´, so congratulations!!

The ingredients we use are sugar, a bit of honey, egg white, grounded almonds, and a little cinnamon.
This is mixed and melted together and then we give it its typical rectangular shape.
This is very typical at Christmas in Spain. This recipe is for soft turrón but you can also have hard turrón, (the two most typical ones) chocolate, and of many different flavours.almendra

This nut is very typical in La Rioja. It´s the almond.


Another typical product we prepare with almonds is ´garrapiñadas´: We use peeled almonds, coated with caramel sugar and then put into the oven to bake.
