Turrón, or turron, is one of the most recognizable Spanish products in the world. This Spanish sweet treat is enjoyed throughout the year but is really most popular during the festive season when it is an essential component of any Christmas meal.
While today a number of different varieties exist – with many regions having their own special recipes – the history of turrón can be traced back to one common origin: the Moorish Conquests of the early Middle Ages.
Turrón is a sweet treat made from a mixture of honey, eggs, sugar and, perhaps most importantly of all, toasted nuts. The most common type of nut to be used in the elaboration of turrón is almonds, although other nuts such as pistachios can sometimes be used instead.
