Delicious nougat from PistaciaVera.com.
|Nougat is a confection made of egg whites, toasted almonds or other nuts, and sugar or honey. Gourmet nougat is appearing on the scene.
If you’re given a gift of nougat and you’re not inclined to devour the box, what to do with it?
• You can store it in the refrigerator for longer life.
• Serve pieces like petit fours, with coffee, tea or hot chocolate.
• Toast it like marshmallows and make nougat s’mores.
• Chip it and use it as a dessert garnish on ice cream, puddings and anything with whipped cream.
|To make nougat chips, freeze the nougat overnight, then chip into small pieces. Refreeze the chips and add the frozen chips just before serving the dessert. Don’t thaw frozen nougat; it will destabilize.
