Traditional Turron candy goes back over 500 years to Spain's Moorish roots. It's a hard nut-based nougat or brittle, almonds or other nuts roasted with plentiful honey and egg white sometimes added in to cohere the mixture. All three varieties of my selection by El Almendro (since 1883!) are delicious and now I desire to try more, especially a homemade version. Thanks for bringing this back in your suitcase, Mom!
