Marcona almonds are a type of sweet, gourmet almond from Spain that is very popular in Mediterranean countries. A Marcona almond is far sweeter, moister, and softer than the classic almond variety with a buttery flavor and texture and it has a delicate aroma.
Marcona is the best known variety of almonds. It is a round and fat almond and with a low percentage of bitterness, which is excellent for frying as it has less oil in its composition.
STORAGE & CARE
It is important to store them in a sealed container in a cool, dry place. They can be kept in the fridge or freezer if you're trying to lengthen their shelf life.
Marcona almonds can be eaten in the same manner as typical almonds, but with their appealing mouthfeel and unique taste, these nuts turn an ordinary dish into something special. Try the specialty almonds in tortes, sautéed in oil and sprinkled over a salad or served with Spanish Cheese.
Marcona almonds (98%), oil (1%), salt (1%). May contain traces of other dried fruits.
