As you can see, the new way of making almond paste sure beats the old way of doing it!
The maker of the almond paste was Henry Heide, whose name takes a prominent place on the front of my tin.
Henry Heide (1846-1931) came to the United States from Westphalia, Germany, in 1866. By 1869 he had established a candy-making business in New York and was known for making delicious macaroons and almond paste. His business grew from a small store to a large factory as he continued to develop confections. Towards the end of his life, in 1920, Henry Heide created his most famous recipes, still enjoyed by millions of movie-goers.
