I have some left over almond paste and I am not sure what to do with it! I've never used it before and probably won't want any again until next Xmas ( It was used in a Rum Ball recipe)
Please tell me if I can freeze it until then or should I just keep it in the fridge? Or should I just throw it out and get fresh next year if I need it?
Andi I do keep my nuts in the freezer and they last quite a while but not forever - my little freezer bible ('Will It Freeze?") says 1 year and certainly the nuts I put in the freezer last Xmas were OK this year.
Is your almond paste the highly sugared one from Odense or the less sweet type like the one in the can from Solo? There are many, many uses for both types. We buy the Solo almond paste and use it in a number of recipes. I like to thin the paste out with some butter and use it as the filling in cinnamon rolls or tea rings.
