Marchpane or marzipan is an exotic sweet made of almonds and sugar. If you harvest a lot of almonds, this is a good way to preserve them over a longer period of time and to concentrate and increase their food content (see table below). Marchpane comes in three variants: Normal, chocolate and block.
If you want to make a special treat, add some cocoa beans to cover the mass in chocolate.
For a big feast with your friends or for easier storage, you can prepare a block of marchpane. This can be placed on a table and provides 6 servings like other pastries.
Aside from crafting, marchpane can be bought from various Bakers, such as Near Harad Bakers.
For easy comparison, the raw material to produce one marchpane block = three normal marchpanes = six almonds are listed in the table below, with the food content, when eaten in the respective form.
|6 almonds||6 x 2 () = 12 ()|
|3 normal||3 x 6 () = 18 ()|
|3 chocolate||3 x 8 () = 24 ()|
|1 block||6 x 3 () = 18 ()|
