    I ditched the Zen Garden. Now I have Marzipan on my wishlist and I really can't see myself using it. Ideas?

    I’ll be mixing with Succulent in the morning but glad you mentioned that because I added huckleberry to kiss with sweetness. I’d better omit it...

    Succulent Berry

    1% Apple, Fuji (FA)
    .8% Bilberry (FA)
    .2%Huckleberry (TPA)
    1.2% Pomegranate (FA)
    6% Succulent Strawberry (OSDIY)

    @sk25411 posted a similar recipe a couple days ago which got me wanting to try my succulent I'd recently received. I haven’t yet found my favorite strawberries but I really like shisha as support.

    Marzipan is sweet. I like it but wouldn’t suggest for you.

    As I said, I don't do much with strawberries. I do follow and read the big time mixers and most feel you get the sweetest, most realistic strawberry with a trinity of flavors.

    TFA Strawberry Ripe 3%
    INW Shisha Strawberry 2%
    FA Red Touch .5%

    Mix as a stone and replace the strawberry % in your recipe with the same % of the trinity. IDK, but that is what they tell me. :)

    I’m going to have to start a spreadsheet for flavors. I don’t have many , in a rubbermaid box...pulled out every one to find strawberry. Last blooming bottle :blink: I picked up. And I need the nail polish organizer. This is not a “box” friendly hobby

    The only sb I find useful as well. FA juicy sb was a disappointment for me after all the hype I'd read. I only keep the Cap for Meg's mixes.

    FA Marzipan...

    HIC's Notes:

    Don’t pass this one by, even if you don’t like marzipan candy. It’s the flavor of sugar-glazed bitter almonds, reminiscent of the distinctive almond flavor in amaretto liqueur (but not a boozy flavoring).

    Additions of 0.5% or less complement and sharpen stone fruit flavors like apricot, peach, and cherry.

    Marzipan is a powerful sweetener that adds superb nuttiness to bakery vapes - try it with FA Apple Pie for a sweet treat.

    If you’re looking for mild almond extract flavor, see FA Almond instead.

    Read all of HIC's Notes here:
    mamajsflavorshop.com

    More notes:

    Marzipan is very sweet bitter-almonds

    Marzipan boosts the intensity of Peach in bakery recipes.

    Just about anywhere you use Marzipan, Fig will add interest. Very good combo used together.

    I have two large make-up train cases that I store my flavors in. The trays make it easy to see everything and I use the deeper bottom for extras. I like having mine out of sight. Now, these train cases are much more expensive than the nail polish organizers, but I already had them, so it worked out well. I use a 3rd for wire and cotton but if I get anymore flavors, that will have to go into a plastic box of some kind and the flavors will get the 3rd train case. It works for me.

    I don’t find it to be sweet at low percentages and is useful in cookies and almond mixes. Very good with bourbon.
