Today it is one of Norway’s favourite sweets, especially popular around Christmas time. If you haven’t tasted homemade marzipan, you are in for a treat! Here I have flavoured and coloured the marzipan with different spices.

    I urge you to study the Middle Ages more, especially when making claims about the period, as there are so many misconceptions. Medievals did not believe the earth was flat. This Wikipedia article should interest you:

    Take care
