Finca La Rosala Truffle Marcona Almonds 90g

Doubly Fine Earthiness

These deli¬≠cious almonds from Valen¬≠cia, Spain have a dis¬≠tinc¬≠tive shape and are full of nat¬≠ur¬≠al, health¬≠ful oils. They are the ingre¬≠di¬≠ent of choice in many Span¬≠ish hol¬≠i¬≠day treats.

TAST­ING NOTES FROM THE CURATOR

Blanched Mar¬≠cona almonds are fat¬≠ter, rounder, and sweet¬≠er than the more com¬≠mon pointy-tipped Cal¬≠i¬≠forn¬≠ian almonds, mak¬≠ing them a treat of grow¬≠ing pop¬≠u¬≠lar¬≠i¬≠ty on both sides of the Atlantic. Roast¬≠ed or fried and tossed in olive or sun¬≠flower oil, these nuts are a spe¬≠cial¬≠ty grown on plan¬≠ta¬≠tions and cer¬≠tain moun¬≠tain¬≠ous regions of the Mediterranean. 

This blend is cooked with cane sug¬≠ar and salt, then sprin¬≠kled with La Vera papri¬≠ka, truf¬≠fle aro¬≠ma, and shav¬≠ings of mild¬≠ly earthy, sub¬≠tly hazel¬≠nut-per¬≠fumed black sum¬≠mer truffles. 

PREPA­RA­TION OR PAIRINGS

These nuts make a deli¬≠cious snack or part of a cheese and char¬≠cu¬≠terie tray sure to impress at any inti¬≠mate gath¬≠er¬≠ing. For an after¬≠noon munch, these nuts go well with a glass of wine, espe¬≠cial¬≠ly Tem¬≠pranil¬≠lo Rio¬≠jas. We rec¬≠om¬≠mend our Ram√≥n Bil¬≠bao Cri¬≠an¬≠za DOCa 2016 as your after-five pour. 

They also go well with salty dish¬≠es con¬≠tain¬≠ing eggs, a love¬≠ly gar¬≠nish, accom¬≠pa¬≠ni¬≠ment, or part of a quick omelet or scram¬≠ble. Crush¬≠ing these nuts into game bird stews also adds a lay¬≠er of nut¬≠ty-sweet depth to the dish.

A RARE MONARCH AMONG NUTS

Almond-grow¬≠ing has been a Span¬≠ish tra¬≠di¬≠tion for cen¬≠turies, though only a small per¬≠cent¬≠age of the world‚Äôs almonds come from this coun¬≠try. The plan¬≠ta¬≠tions along the coast and in the moun¬≠tain¬≠ous regions pro¬≠duce these round, sweet nuts and, because Euro¬≠pean reg¬≠u¬≠la¬≠tions do not require almonds to be pas¬≠teur¬≠ized, they retain more of their nat¬≠ur¬≠al tex¬≠ture and fla¬≠vor. Thus, the Mar¬≠cona has been giv¬≠en the title Queen of Almonds.

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.
