Additional Information:
The almond is a species of tree native to India, North Africa, and the Middle East. The almonds which we consume are, in fact, seeds; they are a “drupe” and are therefore not considered a true nut. Almond trees are believed to have been one of the earliest trees to have been domesticated. Evidence of domesticated almond trees dating to 3,000-2,000 BC has been unearthed in Jordan.

The almond gets no less than ten mentions in the Bible, the first of which, in Genesis, describes it as being “among the best of fruits.” Wild almonds (bitter almonds) contain glycoside amygdalin. Once an almond is crushed or chewed, this compound is converted into prussic acid (hydrogen cyanide) – a deadly poison. Eating a few dozen could be fatal. Domesticated almonds (sweet almonds), however, do not contain glycoside amygdalin and are, of course, safe to eat and utterly delicious.

Fortunately, the delicately flavoured and versatile almond is available throughout the year to make a healthy and tasty addition to both sweet and savoury dishes.

Storage Advice:
Store your nuts in a sealed container in a cool, dark cupboard or pantry. Most nuts will keep for up to six months that way, but as with most foods, the sooner you eat them, the better they’ll taste. The refrigerator will gain you a month or two more in shelf life. But the best spot is in the freezer. They’ll stay fresh and crunchy for at least a year that way, and probably longer. No matter what, keep nuts in a sealed container. They can easily pick up other odours, and the more you expose them to air, the quicker the oils in them will turn rancid.

Some benefits of proper food storage include eating healthier, cutting food costs and helping the environment by avoiding waste.

  • Store in an airtight container.
  • Store in a cool, dark cupboard.
  • Store away from direct heat or sunlight.
  • Keep lid tightly closed when not in use.
  • Suitable for home freezing.
