These plump and meaty almonds are gently roasted in peanut oil and lightly salted for your eating pleasure.
The almond that we think of as a nut is technically the seed of the fruit of the almond tree, a glorious medium-size tree that bears fragrant pink and white flowers. Like its cousins, the peach, cherry and apricot trees, the almond tree bears fruits with stone-like seeds (or pits) within. The seed of the almond fruit is what we refer to as the almond nut. Almonds are off-white in color, covered by a thin brownish skin, and encased in a hard shell. Almonds are classified into two categories: sweet and bitter. Sweet almonds are the type that is eaten. They are oval in shape, usually malleable in texture and wonderfully buttery in taste. FERIDIES offers whole, shelled almonds with their skin that have been gently roasted in peanut oil and lightly salted. Almonds are known as the most nutrient dense tree nut and are considered to be the world's healthiest specialty crop. FERIDIES® almonds are OU Kosher Certified and Non-GMO Project Verified.
