To fit the bottom of an 8×7- or 8×8-inch pan, cut two pieces of edible wafer paper to the appropriate dimensions. Prepare the pan by lining it with parchment paper as an alternative.

Step 6: Keep stirring

Cook over medium-low heat for approximately one hour while stirring the mixture with a wooden spoon. It is important that the mixture be thick, glossy, and stiff enough to ensure that the ribbons that drip from the spoon maintain their shape before falling off.

After the nougat mixture has been cooking for 45 minutes, toast the almonds in the oven for 15 minutes.

Step 9: Test nougat consistency

First, a tiny spoonful of the mixture should be dipped into cold water to determine whether or not the nougat is sufficiently solid. It need to be able to hold tight. It is recommended that you continue to boil the mixture over medium-low heat if it becomes too soft or dissolves.

How can you customize this zingy honey almond nougat with lemon and ginger recipe?

The fact that “the base of this recipe uses simple pantry ingredients: just honey, eggs, and nuts (all relatively shelf-stable ingredients)” is one of the benefits that Hoffman mentions about this recipe. On the other hand, you can experiment in a variety of different ways starting from the fundamental base.

“I love how customisable it is, so if ginger and lemon don’t sound appealing, just sub them out for other dried fruit, nuts, or even chocolate!” According to Hoffman. “Personally, I haven’t yet experimented with other mix-ins, but this recipe is a highly adaptable base.”

While your thoughts may have begun to stray towards the ingredients that you enjoy the most, Hoffman has a lot of suggestions for you to check out, including the following: “A variety of add-ins can be used, such as pistachio, hazelnuts, walnuts, and others — [nougat is] similar to biscotti in that way.”

If you intend to provide nougat bites as presents to the people you care about, then you will have a great deal of alternatives to incorporate the elements that are most popular with each individual.
