  • Oven roasted, sprinkled with sea salt
  • A healthy, cholesterol-lowering snack!
  • Size - 2.2 lb/1 kilo

Rare Marcona almonds are smooth and juicy with an incomparably sweet delicate taste -- quite a different flavor than their American cousins.

This version of Marconas is oven roasted, producing a less oily texture. The almonds are then sprinkled with sea salt and vacuum-sealed in plastic for a fresh flavor. The 1 kilo bag is a handy size for entertaining - or for providing a family treat. Either way they will be devoured with delight!

Almonds are one of the healthiest snacks. The nutrient density is so high that a small portion provides substantial nutrients. They also have a high content of cholesterol fighting mono unsaturated oil. A recent study showed that when people eat roughly a handful of almonds a day, they lowered their LDL cholesterol by 3%!

There is a very limited supply of Marcona almonds, since Spain is the only source of this variety in the world. In addition, the trees are early bloomers, which make them vulnerable to late spring frosts. The groves are found along the Mediterranean coasts of Spain -- from the southern coast of Málaga, proceeding east up the coast to Tarragona.

Unlike the familiar American almonds with their light brown porous shells, Spanish Marcona almonds have a protective hard shell that resists insects, so that they may be grown naturally with no need for herbicides.

Ingredients

Marcona almonds and salt.

"These are amazing almonds and, yes, very different compared to their American "cousins." As is, further roasted with additional spices, ground and used in baking, and, yes, with sherry, port, or Madeira...perfect!"

"Lovely mild flavor. Very little salt therefore you can add your own delicious seasonings if you wish. Great with Sherry."

"Perfectly balanced recipe--not too oily or salty. Everybody's favorite stocking stuffer. A great value, too."

Jim Ellsworth  5 Star Rating
"These almonds are great! They are plump and salted just right (moderately to lightly) and the roasting process leaves them "buttery" in flavor and not oily. I keep reordering them. This may be initially hard to understand but I use them for weight loss: sure, they are nuts but the salty, savory flavor works for me as a light lunch. A dozen pieces substitutes for a meat sandwich or that leftover plate of pasta I hope my wife will get to first!"
