【お菓子】トゥロン(Turrón)

スペインでは、クリスマスに非常に力を入れるそうです。
特に食費は、他の月より29%アツプし、その中でも、伝統的なクリスマスのお菓子に、食費の5%も費やすそうです。

代表的なクリスマスのお菓子は・・。
Turrónです。トゥロンはクリスマス(Navidad)の代表的なお菓子です。アーモンドを蜜などで固めたもので、硬い(duro)のと柔らかい(brando)ものがあります。スーパー、食料品店で見かける他、街のケーキ屋さん(pastelería)でも店オリジナルのTurrónがあり、待ち行く人に尋ねればどこのが一番美味しいか教えてくれることでしょう。硬いものは、フランス菓子でみられるヌガーに似た食感です。柔らかいものは、ちょっと他に似たものが見当たりませんが、あえていうとピーナツバターを固めたような感じでしょうか。スペインではこのTurrónともう一つ、クリスマスの代表的なお菓子ポルボロン(粉を固めたようなお菓子)が出回るようになるとNavidadの季節となります。

Hello from Spain to all Japanese people reading this!

Christmas in Spain aren't Christmas without "turron". It's a traditional desert for the Christmas season: the dinner of 24th and 31st of December aren't complete without a chunk of turron. The two traditional variants are, as you said, soft (Blando, in spanish) basicly made from crushed roasted almonds and honey, and hard (duro) made from whole roasted almonds compressed with sugar an eggs. But there are also a lot of flavors and textures of turron: chocolate with crispy rice, coconut, peanuts and chocolate, candied fruits, nougat... (chocolate ones are my favourites). The turron duro variant is original from a Spanish region called Alicante (in the Autonomous Community of Valencia), and the blando one is original from Jijona (a town of Alicante). Nevertheless, both variants are an heritage of the Muslim occupation (711-1492 BC).

Another Christmas desserts are polvorones (polvoron in singular) and mazapanes (mazapan in singular). Both them made traditionally with almonds. As you can see, almbonds are a basic ingredient in all them (turron included), as the almond tree are widely extended in the Spanish peninsula.

I hope you like this post, and sorry because I did't write it in Japanese (since always I'm a frustrated lover of you languagwe and your culture).
