Product Description

Marcona Almonds are referred to as the "Queen of Almonds" and almost all of the production is from Spain. They are sweet, fat and round. With their distinctive shape, it is easy to differentiate marconas from the pointier California almond.  The texture and flavor is a cross between cashew and macadamian nuts. The marcona almond is the ingredient of choice for the best turrones and other confections that are so popular during the holidays in Spain. Even the trees are different, requiring more time and specialized growing conditions than other almonds. Most of the marconas in Spain are grown in the region around Valencia and Alicante with some production also occurring further north on the Mediterranean coast in places like Tarragona. The best brands are blanched, quickly sautéed in fresh extra virgin olive oil and tossed with sea salt.  They are a delicious snack and go great with all kinds of cheese and fruit.  6 oz
