Finca La Rosala Gold Marcona Almonds 90g

The Queen of Almonds

Dis­tinc­tive­ly shaped and full of nat­ur­al, ben­e­fi­cial oils, Mar­cona almonds are the ingre­di­ent of choice for tur­rones and many of Spain’s oth­er hol­i­day confections.

TAST­ING NOTES FROM THE CURATOR

Fat­ter, sweet­er, and rounder than their Cal­i­forn­ian cousins, Mar­cona almonds are gen­er­al­ly blanched. Their trees require spe­cial grow­ing con­di­tions, which can be found only in the Ali­cante and Valen­cia regions of Spain, as well as some parts of the Mediter­ranean coast fur­ther north such as Tar­rag­o­na. The nuts are often roast­ed or fried in olive or sun­flower oil.

These spe¬≠cial-edi¬≠tion Mar¬≠cona almonds are tossed in rose¬≠mary hon¬≠ey, nougat fla¬≠vor¬≠ing, and La Vera papri¬≠ka before being coat¬≠ed in edi¬≠ble gold, a lux¬≠u¬≠ri¬≠ous treat for any occasion.

PREPA­RA­TION OR PAIRINGS

Nuts are a sta¬≠ple on any cheese and char¬≠cu¬≠terie board, and these nuts go espe¬≠cial¬≠ly well with Span¬≠ish cured meats like jam√≥n iberi¬≠co, lomi¬≠to, and sobrasa¬≠da. These gourmet nuts are also ide¬≠al with smoked fish and creamy white gar¬≠lic dish¬≠es. These are con¬≠sid¬≠ered cel¬≠e¬≠bra¬≠tion treats, and pair well with Cham¬≠pagne or Cava. And if you‚Äôre fond of mixed nuts, we sug¬≠gest you try these with our Truf¬≠fle Mar¬≠cona Almonds. The sub¬≠tle fla¬≠vor dif¬≠fer¬≠ences enhance each oth¬≠er, mak¬≠ing for a tru¬≠ly enjoy¬≠able snack!

A VERY SELEC¬≠TIVE NUT

The ori¬≠gins of the Mar¬≠cona almond are not com¬≠plete¬≠ly cer¬≠tain, but these pure Span¬≠ish nuts have been found in Ali¬≠cante for cen¬≠turies. Mar¬≠cona almond trees are rus¬≠tic and hardy ones, capa¬≠ble of grow¬≠ing in dif¬≠fer¬≠ent soil types in the Mediter¬≠ranean region. They are more often found on large, well-irri¬≠gat¬≠ed plan¬≠ta¬≠tions, though‚ÄČ‚ÄĒ‚ÄČall for the per¬≠fect mon¬≠i¬≠tor¬≠ing of these sub¬≠lime, sought-after nuts.

Storage Instructions

Keep your nuts in a cool, dry place away from direct sun¬≠light and strong smells for 1 to 3 months. To pre¬≠serve their fresh¬≠ness best, refrig¬≠er¬≠ate them after open¬≠ing. They‚Äôll last this way for up to 6 months.
