Panforte (literally "strong bread") is a dense, chewy confection from northern Italy with roots dating back to the middle ages. Whole almonds, hazelnuts and walnuts, along with dried pears, candied orange peel and crystallized ginger, are bound together with honey, sugar and chocolate. Intensely spiced with cinnamon, ginger, cloves, and black pepper, panforte should be served in small slices (ideally with coffee, tea or brandy!). Has a very good shelf life and is a great traveling gift for family & friends.
