torrone_with_almond

No celebration in Sicily is complete without torrone, the traditional sweet Italian nougat. In fact, together with with Pandoro and Panettone, torrone Nougat is one of the most classic Italian Christmas sweets. While torrone is eaten all year round, it is most traditionally found in the winter and is a special part of Christmas celebrations. Originally introduced by the Arabs, versions of torrone soon became popular throughout Italy, Spain, and much of Latin America. The arabic roots still can be found in the name of torrone in the Sicilian dialect, ‘œcubbaita,’ a derivation of the arabic ‘œqubbayt.’ Almond nougat is made with egg whites, honey and toasted almonds. Sicilfrutti uses the pizzuta d’™Avola almonds.
