|1 hour 6 min.||35 min.||1 hour 41 min.|
|1||Preheat the oven to 180°C (360°F).
Spread 200 g whole almonds out on a baking sheet and 200 g whole almonds on another.
Take the pistachios out of the oven after 10 minutes and the almonds after 15 minutes.
|2||Pour 400 g caster sugar, 400 g honey and 100 g water into a pan.
Put on medium heat.
|3||Check the temperature as it rises (use a electronic thermometer), until it reaches 150°C (302°F).|
|4||The honey will cause the mixture to froth. Watch it carefully as it tends to boil over.||20 min.|
|5||When the mixture reaches 145°C (293°F), begin beating 70 g egg white, adding 20 g caster sugar halfway through.||5 min.|
|6||As soon as the sugar mixture reaches 150°C (302°F), slow down the mixer and slowly pour the liquid into the beaten egg whites so that it is evenly mixed in.||5 min.|
|7||Leave the beater running for another 5 minutes to give the egg-white mixture time to cool down a little.
Note: In effect you are making italian meringue with honey. You will see what a beautiful ivory colour this gives.
|8||Change beaters: replace the whisk attachment with the flat beater or paddle ("K" beater for Kenwood) as the next stage requires more force.||3 min.|
|9||Set the food processor going again on slow speed, then tip in the mixed almonds and pistachios a few at a time.||5 min.|
|10||Leave to mix thoroughly...||5 min.|
|11||...then scoop out half the nougat onto a sheet of rice paper.||3 min.|
|12||Place a second sheet of rice paper on top and roll, using a rolling pin (you can put blocks on either side to keep the thickness even; here I'm using 2 steel rules).||5 min.|
|13||Cut the nougat into strips...||10 min.|
|14||...then into blocks of whatever size you like.
Do the same for the remaining nougat.
You nougat is ready to be enjoyed.
