As with the majority of Christmas specialities, this soft turrón is predominantly made of almonds and honey combined to give a rich, melting sweet.
Made from 70% indigenous Marcona almonds, toasted and ground finely, then combined with rosemary honey, the turron is sweet, rich and nutty.
Alemany Mel y Turrón is an independent honey and turrón producer located in the remote valley of Os de Balaguer in northern Spain. Alemany's artisanal production practices have remained unchanged for five generations.
Many people like to combine honey with all kinds of ingredients and the outcome is usually undistinguished.
