Delicate and Floral
These Sicilian almonds are heralded for their soft, delicately floral tones. Touches of umami and bitterness come through just enough to provide a deeper complexity to the sweet nut. Mix these organic raw almonds into your favorite biscotti, an almond tart, top a trout almondine, or simply eat them by the handful. These Italian almonds are sure to please.
Symbols of Good Fortune
In February, confectionary blossoms of pink and white flowers bud across the island of Sicily. A cheerful greeting of springtime, the blooming almond trees serve as a reminder of the island's verdant fertility. Delicate, soft and full of a welcome sweetness, it is no surprise that Sicilian almonds are heralded as symbols of good fortune.
Wow, so this is what real almonds are suppose to taste like! I always wondered where the almond flavor came from as the almonds in the states have no flavor but these are incredible!!
Shannon, thank you so much for the feedback! We couldn't agree more- when you get back to the roots of foods like almonds that have become commodities, there's actually distinct flavor profiles in the different varietals that are a delight to discover (as you've just done)! Enjoy!
