Our unsalted, unblanched toasted whole almonds have been cooked to perfection. They’re crunchy, crispy and quite honestly – delicious! Almonds are also among the healthiest nuts in the nut family. They contain very beneficial amounts of protein, fiber, iron, zinc, and calcium (just to name a few). They’re perfect to have on hand when you reach that time of the day when you need a quick, tasty snack and you know you need to also grab something healthy.
Almonds: Additional Information
Almonds are the most widely known and most widely grown tree nuts eaten by man. Botanically, almonds are not actually nuts. They are a pit like those found in peaches, plums and apricots. This explains why almonds are firmer than true nuts like pecans and walnuts. Almond trees are bee-pollinated. The beautiful pink and white blossoms make orchards a fairyland in the spring. Almonds come in many sizes and forms. At Sunnyland Farms we offer extra-large whole almonds, toasted or natural; blanched slivered almonds; and unblanched sliced almonds.
The almond industry harvests around two billion pounds of almonds annually. And that is the nut meats! Compare that to the USDA reported figure for the pecan crop of 235 million pounds (in the shell)! Almonds truly are a heavily farmed nut.
