Apricot kernel can be used as a substitute for bitter almond; in both cases, cooking is, of course, required to render it safe for human consumption.
Can peach (or even apricot) kernel be used as a substitute in making marzipan (typically, almond paste plus sugar-syrup), after the kernel is cooked?
Or is it that, both, peach and apricot can only be used as a substitute for bitter almond, and not a substitute for sweet almond?
