I found the part about how long it took them to pound a couple of pounds of almonds into powder, to make marzipan, incredible. I used a cusinart the last time I made almond milk and that took a while to grind the almonds down to powder. Even after watching this program, I can't believe that it was done by hand and no one took revenge for being forced to pound and grind almonds all day long.
