What to Do with Fresh Almonds
Fairway has these gorgeous little sprouts of spring.
Apparently they are fresh Almonds (fuzzy and greenish on the outside, white--I think-- on the inside)
Any Ideas for what to do with them other than decorate a table top?
I'm so glad you asked. I've been staring at them wondering how you peel them and if you have to toast them. Wouldn't in a million years have occurred to me you could just eat them as is. Who'da thunk?
ETA: There are a number of Fairway markets in the tri-state area. I've seen them at the one in Manhattan on Broadway @ 75th. I'm guessing that's where plumtart saw them as well.
You can eat the whole thing if they're nice and fresh- maybe put a little salt on them. Was introduced to this by a Turkish friend. They are tart and like nothing else I've ever tasted. And isn't the color divine? What a wonderful green, want a dress that color for Spring.
