Possibly the most nutrient-rich tree nut, the delicately flavored and versatile almond makes a healthy and tasty addition to your sweet and savory dishes. Technically the seed of the fruit of the almond tree which originated in the Middle East, almonds are highly revered in some cultures. Mentioned numerous times in the Bible, they are considered a symbol of watchfulness and promise due to its early flowering. A natural source of protein, fiber and healthy fatty acids, these oval shaped nuts have a wonderfully buttery taste and can be eaten on its own, raw or tasted, whole, sliced, or slivered. Use for marzipan, nougat, cookies, macarons, and cakes. Sprinkle over cereal and ice cream too!
