livbydesignI just had my first fresh almond! I didn't even know this beautiful, velvety green Spring delicacy existed!
This is an almond before it hardens into a nut. It is considered a stone fruit in this stage, has a short window of existence and is one of the first fruits of Spring.
It had a tart, fresh flavor. Supposedly tossed in olive oil & salt makes for a great cocktail appetizer. I think these would be a nice salad addition - paired with arugula, watercress & Meyer lemon.
Nutritional value: Green almonds offer the same nutritional benefits as dry almonds including vitamin C, vitamin E, iron, calcium, magnesium, riboflavin, and L-carnitine. Green almonds also offer protein and fiber and have a low glycemic index.
