Buying nougat of crema catalana or Yema tostada is very typical in Catalonia.
Its origin, according to a legend, is that in Jijona the person in charge of buying the raw material made a mistake when buying the eggs needed to make the typical Jijona and Alicante nougat (where the egg white is used) and bought many more than necessary. by confusing dozens with units and, in order not to get rid of any of them, he invented a kind of marzipan with egg, which resulted in an turrones de Yemas de huevos sin tostar.
Whether the legend is true or not, it has become a favorite of many people for its genuine candied egg flavor. This nougat is gluten and lactose free , however, it is not suitable for vegans as it contains candied egg yolks.
In Turrones la Colmena we toast the sugar in an artisan way to each yolk tablet. In the following video you can see how we toast our 300 grams artisan toasted yolk nougat bars. Spectacular aroma…!
