Homemade marzipan. The easiest in the world !: Presentation
Is there anything more typical than marzipan at Christmas? I teach you to cook them the same way my grandmother made them. They are tender and very juicy and will be prepared very easily and quickly. They remind me a lot of my childhood, because in fact the tradition of making them at home is lost. I recommend you prepare a good amount, because in the end they will fly.

Homemade marzipan. The easiest in the world !: Preparation of the recipe
1. – Boil the potatoes for 30 minutes. Prick with a fork before removing to make sure they are soft. Peel the potatoes. Mash with a food grinder.
2.- Grate the yellow part of the lemon.
3. – Mix the ingredients. Put the mashed potatoes, lemon zest, sugar and ground almonds in a bowl. Stir with your hands until you get a compact dough. After a few minutes of kneading we will get a very sticky dough.
4. – Prepare the marzipan. Cover the bottom of the cookie with waffles. To shape the marzipan, wet your hands with a little water and form a ball and then give it an egg shape. Place the marzipan on the waffle, leaving a small space between them. You can make a small dimple with leave.
5.- Bake the marzipan. Take the pan in the oven preheated to 200 degrees with heat only on top. Take them out of the oven after 15 minutes, when you see that they are already red. Allow them to cool in the same pan. Do not touch them while they are hot, as they will lose their shape.
6. – Separate the marzipans, being careful not to break them. Cut off the excess wafer with scissors.
7. – Prepare a syrup to give them a shiny finish. Put the water and sugar in a saucepan over the fire. As soon as the bubbles become large and you see that it has thickened, remove from the heat. The approximate time is 10 minutes.
8. – Dip each marzipan in the syrup and leave them on the grill. You can put greaseproof paper under the grid in case a drop of syrup falls. Allow the syrup to dry overnight.
9. – Wrap the marzipans. I wrapped them with some pieces that they sell specifically for marzipan packaging. Wrap them in the shape of caramel and you’re done.
My tips for making homemade marzipan:
You can find Christmas marzipan packaging newspapers in stationery and confectioneries. If you can’t find them, take wrapping paper and cut them yourself.
