Almonds are the delicately-flavoured, buttery-textured seed of the almond tree. These almonds are blanched, which involves boiling the almonds briefly and then shocking them with cold water, which causes the skins to become loose and easy to remove. These almonds are then sliced lengthwise. This product is steam pasteurized.
Sliced blanched almonds make a tasty and attractive garnish for ice cream, salad, cakes, cookies, and other baked goods. They are an excellent addition to granola, the fine slices toast at the same rate as other ingredients.
Product should be stored in a dry, cool place away from heat and light. The recommended storage temperature is between 35-45°F, with a relative humidity of 65%, for an estimated shelf life of 6 months.
