Handmade Brittle Torrone in Red Tin (Scaldaferro)

The only company in the world which prepares nougat totally by hand!!

Nougat, with almonds and honey, in a red tin.

Mandorlato Scaldaferro is a confectionery product composed of toasted almonds mixed with honey, sugar, and egg whites whipped until the mixture becomes white, creamy, and soft: everything is cooked very slowly.

The cooking is in a bain-marie over many hours. This is one of many steps that separates Scaldaferro from everyone else as industrial nougats cannot invest the time, the patience, and the attention to detail for their mass-produced torrone. Scaldaferro's hand-made torrone is perfectly crumbly and immediately recognizable, characterized by a “frothy” texture and a slightly amber color.

After cooking, the dough is poured directly into the tins without further processing.

The ingredients, all the best of the best, are one of their "secrets". They use a special blend of honeys, and the Italian almonds are carefully selected and roasted directly by the Scaldaferro family. This great care, this hand-made process, is what makes Scaldaferro Torrone the best in the world.

Ingredients: ALMONDS, honey, granulated sugar, glucose syrup, egg white, vanilla, wafer (potato starch, water).

It does not contain preservatives, dyes, flavors. Gluten free product. It may contain traces of other nuts in shell.

Note they pour the hot nougat directly into the tins onto EDIBLE paper (a.k.a. wafer). So you can peel the paper off, or you can just eat it "As is".

This rare nut oil is wonderful on a salad, mixed in a vinaigrette, or tossed with sauteed vegetables or potatoes for a unique, nutty flavor. This makes for a great gift for the chef in your life, or it is a wonderful treat for yourself!

Our favorite way to use this oil is in salad dressings, or sprinkling it over white fish, gnocchi, or roasted beets.

Please refrigerate J. Leblanc nut oils after opening.
