Spain is home to many culinary delights, one of those being tapas. This week I give you a tapas classic; Marcona Almonds
by Bella Maria. Known as the “Queen of Almonds,” Spain makes many types, including Largueta, Valencia, and Planetas to name a few, but the Marcona is their most cherished and prized. Softer and sweeter than California almonds, Bella Maria’s Marcona almonds are fried in sunflower oil, and salted to highlight the almond’s flavor while not overpowering it. They are the perfect addition to a cheese and charcuterie board or as a simple nibble to go alongside a glass of beer, wine or sherry. Usually $7.99 per 3.5oz cup, Bella Maria’s Marcona Almonds will be on sale this week for only $5.99! Cheers and Bon Appetit.
