Almonds contain what is considered to be one of the healthiest oils you can eat, while also being high in riboflavin, protein, calcium, and fiber.
With all of their nutritious benefits, it’s no wonder that almonds are currently the largest tree crop in California. Many farmers bring them to your farmers' market all year long!
This waist-friendly snack can be found at your farmers' market shelled and unshelled; blanched, roasted, flavored, slivered, and more!
Look for solid white texture with no discoloration.
Packaged almonds can be stored in unopened packages in a cool, dark place for up to one year. But almonds tend to become rancid when aged. Almonds can be stored in the refrigerator to make them last longer.
