Spanish Marcona Almonds

Posted by Jennifer (the RD) on May 13, 2013

My parents just returned from a trip to Spain and brought back some Spanish almonds.  They are really yummy.  They are much fatter than the ones grown here in California.  They’re a little sweeter in taste and have a softer texture also.  They can be eaten right out of the bag or also toasted in the oven with different spices or even rosemary and olive oil.  I am going to try out some recipes that I can use so I could use the nuts as a salad topper.  Although they are imported, they are available pretty widely.  I saw them at Fresh and Easy and my mom even saw them at Costco.  Give them a try!  🙂
