Turrón de gofio (Gofio nougat)

Turrón de gofio (Gofio nougat)

There are many ways to eat the Canarian staple, gofio (here are nine others), but in the run up to Christmas, what better way than as the traditional, seasonal sweet, turrón.

Ingredients:

100 gr gofio de millo (corn gofio)
75 gr of honey
125 gr ground almonds
50 gr of sugar

Method:

  1. Toast the gofio in a nonstick pan over a low heat, stirring. Once toasted remove from heat and let cool slightly.
  2. Meanwhile, put the sugar in a saucepan on the heat and allow it to caramelize. When the sugar acquires caramel texture, add the ground almonds and stir for a few minutes.
  3. Place baking paper into the mold you have chosen for the preparation of this nougat (you can use a rectangular silicone mold or half of a simple milk brick).
  4. Pour the almond and caramel mixture onto the baking paper, and let cool slightly.
  5. When it is cool enough to handle, add the gofio and honey and knead so that it is well integrated.
  6. Put the dough back into the mold lined with baking paper, flatten the entire surface, cover with more baking paper and place in the refrigerator for a few hours.
