Nut pastes

Nut pastes are thick, creamy spreads made from ground nuts and can be produced with or without the addition of any other major ingredients. They are commonly used in cooking, baking, and as a spread for various dishes. The most popular nut pastes include almond paste, peanut butter, and hazelnut paste (also known as praline paste or gianduja).

Some examples are:

Almond Paste: Almond paste – made by grinding blanched almonds with sugar or on their own to create a smooth, sweet, and slightly grainy paste. It is commonly used in baking for pastries, cakes and cookies.. Almond paste provides a rich, nutty flavour and a moist texture to the finished products.

Peanut Butter: Peanut butter is one of the most well-known and widely consumed nut pastes. It is made by grinding roasted peanuts until they form a smooth, creamy consistency.

Hazelnut Paste (Praline Paste/Gianduja): Hazelnut paste is a blend of roasted hazelnuts and sugar or chocolate, depending on the type. Praline paste is made by grinding caramelized hazelnuts with sugar, and gianduja is a sweet chocolate-hazelnut paste. Both variations are used in various confections, desserts, and as a filling for chocolates and truffles.

Nut pastes are not only delicious but also nutritious, as nuts are rich in healthy fats, proteins, vitamins, and minerals. They provide a versatile way to add nutty flavours and creaminess to a wide range of culinary creations.

Moreover, they can be used as a substitute for dairy-based spreads for those with lactose intolerance or dietary preferences. However, it is essential to consider any potential allergies when using nut pastes, as they can trigger allergic reactions in some individuals.
