1 quart heavy cream

3/4 cup sugar

2 teaspoons almond extract

Pinch salt

1 whole vanilla bean

5 sheets gelatin

1/4 cup orange marmalade

1/4 cup toasted almonds, crushed


  1. In heavy-bottomed saucepan, heat the cream slowly. Add the sugar, almond extract, salt and vanilla bean. Stir well and put aside.
  2. Bloom the gelatin sheets in cold water until soft, 5 to 10 minutes. Wring gently to removed excess water, and then add to the heated cream and stir well. Pour into a large loaf pan and chill overnight.
