Then put in dried fruit, cut up small, and enough bread crumbs and sponge cake crumbs. To make it taste good, add sugar or honey and spices. Simmer until it's nice and stiff. Let cool and make little balls.|
Use ground almond paste (like peanut butter only made from almonds, from a health food shop) diluted with about double the volume of white wine. Bring it to the boil in a thick saucepan; the original recipe doesn't mention this, probably because whoever wrote it down assumes that simmering implies having boiled first. As soon as it boils, thicken it with fresh breadcrumbs and/or cake crumbs; if you started with half a jar of almond paste you'll need a good double handful. Keep stirring or it will stick to the saucepan. Flavour with demerara sugar, ground ginger and cinnamon. It's a traditional Valdyan sweet.
