HISTORYKnown as the “Queen of Almonds,” the highly prized Marcona is indigenous to Spain. Requiring more time and specialized growing conditions, the trees flourish in the region of Valencia. Plumper than most varieties, this smooth, tan almond contains high amounts of essential oils. It is sweet and softer than most almonds. Our almonds are peeled, fried in sunflower oil, and salted to highlight the almond’s flavor, not overpower it. This is the most traditional way Marcona almonds are prepared. They are commonly eaten in Spain as an appetizer or to complement the meal.
HANDLINGStore sealed in a cool, dark place for maximum shelf life.
