One of Spain's greatest treasures, Marcona almonds are a little larger and more rounded than the teardrop-shaped California almonds you find in stores. But while distinctive, their size and appearance are not what make our Raw Marcona Almonds so popular with whole-foods enthusiasts and gourmands everywhere. This is all about flavor. The truth is, anyone who loves almonds can expect an elevated experience with these premium Marconas! The product of perfect growing conditions in the western Mediterranean, raw Marcona almonds are light yet full-bodied, with a delicate crunch and an amazing butter-sweet flavor unrivalled by any other almond in the world.
Our Marcona almonds are so naturally sweet and flavorful, they don?t need to be roasted or salted to bring them to the height of flavor (although many folks do prefer to enjoy them in the traditional Spanish fashion, sauteed in olive oil and lightly seasoned with sea salt or other favorite spices, for an equally delightful change of pace). With their extra-high oil content, raw Marcona almonds are ideal for baking and cooking as they maintain their wonderful flavor and texture throughout the cooking process?all the more reason to stock up on bulk Marcona almonds from NutsInBulk!
